The former President’s intervention follows an urgent appeal from the management of the hospital, which was widely reported by the media last Friday.
The items were presented by a delegation led by the Chair of the NDC COVID-19 Technical Team, Mr. Prosper Bani.
Each set of PPE comes complete with a gown, goggle, face shield, N95 face mask, sterilised gloves, head cap and a gum boot.
The Medical Superintendent of the Keta Municipal Hospital, Dr. Antoinette Akuban, thanked Mr. Mahama for the kind and timely gesture. She noted with joy that health workers in her facility feel encouraged and appreciated in the national collective fight to defeat COVID-19 following Mr. Mahama’s intervention.
According to Professor Margaret Kwaku, a member of the NDC COVID-19 Technical Team, though Mr. Mahama had earlier donated sets of PPE to the Volta Regional Hospital in Ho, the former President was moved by media reports to embark on a second round of donations in the Volta Region.
The brief ceremony was attended by management of the Keta Municipal Hospital, Keta and Anlo Constituency Executives of the NDC, NDC Volta Regional Executives led by Chairman Henry Ametepe, the NDC Parliamentary Candidates for Keta and Anlo, Kwame Dzidzorli Gakpe and Richard Kwame Sefe respectively and MP for North Tongu, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa.
“Former President John Dramani Mahama believe that, we all must fold our sleeves and and put our shoulders to the wheel and support government’s efforts. government cannot do it alone, the Ghana Health Service cannot do it alone, the Ministry of Health cannot do it alone, there are other private institutions, corporate Ghana who are all trying to contribute so as a major political party that has ruled this country for the longest of time, we could not possibly have sat aloof because this is affecting all Ghanaians,” Mr. Ablakwa told the media after the donation.
