The municipal assembly, which is mandated to provide funds for the construction of the road that leads to the hospital, telecommunication and electricity, claims it cannot meet the cost.
Mrs. Christina Kobbinah, Municipal Chief Executive for Tarkwa, has persistently said that the budget for the said projects are too high and beyond the assembly’s capability and that they have forwarded the budget to the appropriate authorities for support.
The medical superintendent at the Tarkwa Government Hospital, Dr. Ebenezer Acquah, told the GNA in an interview that the hospital is presently empty.
He wondered why the assembly had not solicited for help from mining companies operating in the area and that the Hospital’s authorities were not satisfied with certain facilities.
These include the washing basin and the number of bathrooms per ward.
Dr. Acquah said when they complained to the contractor he, said he was working under specific instruction and that for him to change any of those will require additional funds.
