Ghanaian movie star and aspiring MP John Dumelo has issued a clarion call to H.E Nana Addo to open the University of Ghana Medical Centre to help cater for Covid-19 cases.
The 650 bed facility has been idle since it’s completion due to a tussle between the university authorities and the ministry of health over who has the right to manage the facility.
And Mr. Dumelo believes it can be of huge benefit to us if the facility is made operational to help manage cases of the novel coronavirus which us threatening to rear its ugly head in the coming days.
The MP aspirant for Ayawaso West Wuogon constituency made his concerns known in a tweet.
He wrote, “The cases are now 68. We are not praying for it to increase but that looks inevitable now. I would like to please beg His Excellency @NAkufoAddo to please open the 650 bed University of Ghana Medical Center for the purpose of managing the virus. Respectfully Sir”.
