Infuriated Ghanaians are currently calling out the Akufo-Addo government on Twitter after a video of a pregnant woman in labor being carried across a river in order to get her to a hospital surfaced online.
In the viral video shared by JoyNews , the pregnant lady from Nangruma community is filmed as some young men carry her across the river on a chair.
A bike was first carried across the river to help continue the journey.
The report further revealed that the medium of transportation was the only alternative as the community had no healthcare center and continually suffer the risk of taking on long distance trips to get emergency healthcare service coupled with the fact that there are no bridges.
Sadly, the woman’s child died.
Ghanaians who have taken to Twitter are calling out the government for not providing adequate healthcare facilities or the means to reach the available facilities.
See Twitter reactions:
The MP clearly doesnt care about the healthcare of his ppl in Yagaba
He cant explain the poor healthcare of his impoverishd constituents
Bt I'm sure he is gotten his 4X4 & is driving around ACCRA doing NDC-NPP politics
Ghanaians, wake up
Teach them a lesson#joysms #joynews https://t.co/t15CGyC81W
