The Presidential Advisor on Health, Dr. Anthony Nsiah Asare says government will not hesitate to terminate the contract of contractors who delay the completion of the Agenda 111 hospitals.

Dr. Nsiah Asare says government will stick to the timelines given for the construction of all the hospitals.

“We will not shy away from cancelling or terminating any contract which is not going very well,” he said.

“This is a project where we have at least given at least 10 percent mobilisation to all the contractors who have started work and I believe they should start mobilisations to get enough materials and work very fast,” Dr. Nsiah Asare added.
