Following the tragic death of 70-year old, Anthony Opoku-Acheampong who lost his life at the LEKMA hospital after six other hospitals refused to admit him due to an obvious lack of beds; many Ghanaians have voiced their concerns about our health care facilities.
They have vehemently urged the government to open the University of Ghana Medical Center (UGMC) in order for the necessary improvements to be made in the health sector.
Nikki Samonas, an actress and TV presenter, joined the campaign to push for the opening of UGMC.
In an interview with JoyNews’ MzGee she said “it’s of concern to me because people are dying. Other hospitals are not having enough to take of these ones because their facilities are down and low”.
Nikki Samonas has been leading a crusade for UGMC to be opened, stressing “we won’t rest until it’s opened, it must be opened”.
