Bawumia’s hospital cost comparisons unfair- Segbefia

A former Health Minister under the John Mahama led government has described as unfair claims by the Vice President that a 60-80 bed District hospital was built at a whopping cost of $25 million, an amount that could have been used in building six similar hospitals.

Alex Segbefia told Joy News, Monday, without providing details of contracts that led to the construction of the hospitals, it was out of place for Dr Mahamudu Bawumia to suggest the price of a hospital had been inflated in comparison to another.

He was reacting to comments made by the Vice President during a procurement conference in Accra, Monday.

“The country is currently spending $25 million to construct 60-80 bed district hospitals at a time when the African Development Bank is constructing 150-bed capacity hospitals in Accra at only $1.3 million” Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia revealed.
