The Metropolitan Chief Executive (MCE) of Accra, Dr. Alfred Okoe Vanderpuije has commissioned 4 new generators worth GH₵18,3855 each to 3 polyclinics within the metropolis to aid in constant power supply. The clinics are Adabraka polyclinic,Ussher polyclinic and the Kaneshie polyclinic. Dr. Vanderpuije stated that, the generator would support their day to day activities giving the clinic a 24 hours uninterrupted power to deliver their services. He cautioned management of the polyclinics to be watchful of persons who steal generator batteries which renders the generator useless hoping that there will be proper maintenance and constant supervision. He applauded the management for the maintenance of the toilet facility as well as the cholera bay the Assembly provided and hoped that, it would continue. Dr. Yaw Aduse-Poku, Head of Adabraka Polyclinic expressed his appreciation to the MCE and assured a good maintenance of the generator adding that, the generator came at the appropriate time. Madam Magarrete Akuamoah, the administrator of the Ussher Polyclinic also showed appreciation and stated that, the generator would render a quick service to the general public. She however pleaded with the Assembly to provide the clinic with an ambulance that would improve emergency response to the clinic at all times. At the Kaneshie polyclinic, Dr. Patrick Amo-Mensah, medical doctor applauded the MCE for the street naming exercise within the metropolis which has helped in locating the health facility easily by clients. He further took the opportunity to cite some challenges facing the clinic which included an abandoned building that began in 2004 to serve as a multi-purpose complex for the clinic. He stated that the complex would have an eye clinic, labour wards, dental units, theater for surgical operations as well as consulting room. “If we are able to finish this building, we can to cater for a lot of people hence reduce pressure from other various hospitals like Ridge hospital, 37 military hospital and Korle Bu hospital. Other health facilities which benefited from this support in the phase were Mamprobi Polyclinic, Maamobi Polyclinic and Korle-bu Polyclinic.
