Zebilla (U/E), Sept. 13, GNA – The Member of Parliament (MP) for the Zebilla Constituency, Mr Frank Fusieni Adongo, has disclosed that he has partly financed the construction of a maternity block for the Bawku West District Hospital to promote health delivery.
He indicated that the facility, which was ongoing, was to improve on the maternal health delivery, neonatal health and quality newborn health in the District.
Mr Adongo disclosed this in an interview with the Ghana News Agency (GNA) after he inspected the project at Zebilla and said the contribution was from his share of the MP’s Common Fund and a top-up support from the Bawku West District Assembly.
He said maternal health was paramount to government and it was determined to ensuring that the people got access to quality health delivery at their door-steps, especially pregnant women and mothers with newborns.
Mr Adongo, who is also the Deputy Upper East Regional Minister, said he had completed the construction of an abandoned morgue for the Zebilla Hospital from his share of the Health Insurance Levy and would soon equip it with equipment to enable the people to preserve their dead ones.
He said to ensure the promotion of quality education in the District, he had presented 320 dual desks, valued at about GH¢55,000 to the District Education Directorate, adding that he used part of his common fund to support students in second cycle and tertiary institutions.
Mr Adongo urged parents to see the education of their children as paramount and invest in them since they would grow to become the human resource base for the development of their communities and the country at large.
The MP assured his constituents that he would promote quality health delivery, education, provide potable drinking water, improve on sanitation and create an enabling environment for agricultural activities to thrive.
