Agenda 111: Adeiso project abandoned a year after contractors received $1.3m

Work on many Agenda 111 facilities across the country have stalled including the construction in Adeiso.

More than a year after contractors received $1.3 million to mobilise and start construction in the Upper West Akim district of the Eastern Region, the site remains bare.

The site is undeveloped ad filled with rocks and weeds.

The Minority in Parliament is touring some of the Agenda 111 sites to expose what they say is the deceit of government.

Ranking Member on the Health Committee, Kwabena Mintah Akandoh, “it is reported here that the contractor came to the site around the 31st January 2022.”

“So it was our expectation that when we get here much progress would have been made but unfortunately, what we see here is not the case,” he told journalists on Wednesday.

The MP insisted that government has no plans to complete the hospitals.
