The people of Zinnindo community in Gushegu in the Northern Region are to receive a boost in their healthcare services, following the commissioning of an ultra-modern clinic on Thursday, by the Regional Minister, Salifu Saeed.
The clinic is expected to serve the healthcare needs of several communities and, consequently undertake major operations that didn’t exist when it was a Chips Compound.
The clinic is part of the corporate social responsibility of the National Petroleum Authority (NPA).
Speaking at the commissioning attended by chiefs and residents in the community, Hassan Tampuli, Chief Executive of the NPA, said the facility is as a result of the request from the elders on behalf of the people, who had to travel several kilometers to seek for medical care.
Mr. Tampuli, who is also the NPP Parliamentary Candidate for Gushegu, said the people had struggle for long relying on unorthodox and dangerous means to address their health needs, which end up complicating their health.
But the clinic, he explained, will not only address the health needs but ensure they [residents] receive the appropriate care in a conducive environment and from some of the best medical practitioners.
The Northern Regional Minister on his part urged the people to put the facility to good use, reiterating the government’s commitment to provide the basic needs of the people.
On Mr. Tampuli’s bid to become the Member of Parliament for the area, he urged the people to vote for him and President Akufo Addo, because the NPP party represent the best interests of the people of Gushegu
Later in an interview with journalists, Mr. Tampuli was optimistic of retaining the seat for the NPP.
Apart from the clinic, he explained, communities with no electricity are now being put on the national grid.
