Bawumia allocates GHS1m to speed up clearance process for KATH project items at Tema Port

In a bid to support the ongoing renovation efforts at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital (KATH), Vice President, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia has taken steps to expedite the clearance of crucial construction materials from the Tema Harbour.

The shipment, which includes vital imported tiles necessary for the project, had been facing delays at the port, resulting in additional demurrage fees and impeding progress.

With the import duty for ten containers of tiles totaling over GH¢1.7 million, there was a looming risk of indefinite project delays.

Recognizing the urgency of the situation, Dr. Bawumia intervened by contributing GH¢1 million towards clearing the duty, ensuring the seamless continuation of this crucial hospital renovation.

The ‘Heal Komfo Anokye’ project, a joint initiative launched by the Asantehene in collaboration with KATH, aims to raise $10 million for the comprehensive refurbishment of Blocks A, B, C, and D within the hospital.

This initiative holds particular significance as it coincides with the 25th anniversary of the enstoolment of the Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, and is poised to revitalize the nearly seven-decade-old tertiary healthcare facility.
