HON.ADWOA SAFO CUTS-SOD FOR THE CONSTRUCTION OF NHIA OFFICE AND A FIRE SERVICE STATION AT DOME-KWABENYA

The Member of Parliament for the Dome-Kwabenya Constituency, Hon. Adwoa Safo  on Monday, May 4, 2020, cut sod for two major projects in her Constituency. The projects were the construction of an ultramodern District Office for the National Health Insurance Authority (NHIA) and a Fire Service Station both within the Dome-Kwabenya Constituency in the Greater Accra Region. 

Speaking at the sod-cutting ceremony for both the NHIA office and the Fire Service Station, which was held at the project site near the Atomic Roundabout, Hon Sarah Adwoa Safo noted that, owing to the lack of a District Office for the NHIA, her constituents are compelled to make do with a small office store at Dome, which she said, is very inconveniencing to healthcare delivery, thus justifying the decision to construct a new District Office befitting the fast-growing metropolitan nature of the constituency.

The new edifice, according to her, has a reception area, general offices, documents control room, MIS office, accounts office, manager’s office, conference room and other amenities including vehicle parking area for patrons. She also gave further details of the project, which she said, is expected to be completed within six (6) calendar months, at an estimated cost of GHC 1,500,000.00, which is fully funded by the Government of Ghana. She also gave the contractor’s name as Messrs Elpizo Enterprise Limited.

The MP, who doubles as the Minister of State in-charge of Public Procurement and also the Deputy Majority Leader in Parliament, observed that, “the spirit of this gesture is to reinforce the broader objective of government’s effort to provide infrastructure for the delivery of effective healthcare nationwide pursuant to Goal 3 of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals”.  

She also, in line with her social contract with the people, spoke about her health-related achievements in the constituency including the construction of the Haatso Maternity Clinic; the commissioning of the Ga East Municipal Hospital which she spearheaded; the ongoing construction of Clinical Service and Out Patients Department (OPD) Block at the Abokobi Health Centre; provision of Free Health Screening as well as enrolling thousands of her constituents onto the NHIS and renewing their registration status as required among several health undertakings. 

On the Fire Service Station, she justified the decision to construct same on the ground that the Constituency/District has no Fire Service Station, which she said, was unacceptable by every stretch of imagination.

On her part, the Municipal Chief Executive for the Ga East Municipal Assembly, Janet Tulasi Mensah, who spoke on behalf of the Local Authority, thanked the Dome-Kwabenya legislator, for this huge initiative. 

Equally, the Director of Logistics for the Ghana Fire Service, Samuel Brenya, expressed the Service’s appreciation to the MP and her team. 

Finally, Hon Adwoa Safo used the occasion to thank the Ghana Atomic Energy Commission (GAEC) for providing land for both projects. She also appealed to her constituents and the Ghanaian people at large to continue to repose their confidence in the NPP and the Akufo-Addo government as well as in her good self, as the MP for the area, to continue the good works in delivering prosperity to the good people of Dome-Kwabenya and to the rest of the country.
