MP for the Akatsi South Constituency, Bernard Ahiafor has as a matter of urgency directed the Municipal Engineer to commence repair works on the burnt surgical theatre in the area.
The Surgical Theatre for the Akatsi South Municipal Hospital was gutted by fire on Saturday, March 26, 2022.
Mr. Ahiafor explained why he decided to immediately begin repair works on the burnt theatre.
“ I didn’t become a representative of the people of Akatsi South in Parliament by chance, it is God ordained since it’s God that chooses a leader, I promised myself since 2013, to work in the interest of the people either rainy or shinning. So today, as I am in France, I cannot allow distance prevent them of my promise and dedication, that is why I asked the Municipal engineer to commerce work at the burnt Surgical theatre and present the cost to my office for immediate repairs. Again, the NGO I sent to the constituency to donate the 50 set of computers to the Education Directorate to aid I.T learning in these communities so we can also be leveled with these privileged schools in the cities.”
He continued to promise the constituents of more good works from his outfit to the constituency as he thanked the Municipal Chief Executive for his mutual support in helping achieve more for the constituency, especially in this surgical theatre repairs.
The Municipal Hospital Administrator, Dr. Bonsu also complained grievously of the misfortune and at the same time expressed gratitude to the MP for acting swiftly in responding to them.
"It is such an unfortunate thing that at this imminent time, our municipal theatre got burnt and machines totally shut down hence forcing us not to offer any surgical procedure for now. Fortunately, we called MP and he directed the Municipal Engineer to commence work on it. He is always quick to respond to these issues and he’s been very helpful to us. God Bless him”, he said.
The cause of the fire is yet to be known as investigations are still ongoing to ascertain its cause.
