Some armed Military officers at the yet-to-be-completed Afari Military Hospital in the Ashanti Region, attempted to prevent members Parliament’ Select Committee on Health.

The Committee, which is on an unannounced tour of some abandoned health projects in the country expressed shock when the military men detailed on the ground, attempted to prevent them from touring the project on Monday.

But the Minority MPs on the Committee called the bluff of the officers and proceeded with the tour. They observed that over 100 gas cylinders, several medical equipment among others had been left at the mercy of the weather.

Speaking to JoyNews, the Ranking Member on the Health Committee, Kwabena Mintah Akando charged managers of the facility to put the logistics to use.

“It is a very complex and big facility and it is almost completed, so I think by now, it should be operationalized.

“Unfortunately, we have left the facility to the mercy of the weather and things are getting deteriorated. So we think that as a matter of urgency, we need to bring health professionals here to start the operations in the hospital,” he said.
