I’m happy with work of security – Agona West Municipal Assembly MCE

The Municipal Chief Executive (MCE) of the area, Justina Marigold Assan commended the security agencies for keeping the municipality calm and also ensuring that the municipality is devoid of criminal activities.

According to her, it takes hard work and commitment by personnel of the law enforcement agencies to institute measures and enforce it to ensure the municipality remains relatively calm for residents to go about their duties on daily basis.

The MCE however urged the general public to play a role in crime management by providing vital information and tip offs on the activities of criminals to the security agencies for the necessary action to be taken.

She said this at the 3rd ordinary meeting of the 2nd session of the 7th Assembly of the Agona West Municipal Assembly held at Agona Swedru.

She expressed her profound gratitude to Nananom, security agencies, Assembly members, heads of department for contributing in diverse ways to help in the development of the municipality and Ghana as a whole.

Swedru Government Hospital laboratory in crisis

The Laboratory Department of the Agona Swedru Municipal Government Hospital has ceased performing its critical functions following the breakdown of the Hematology and Biochemistry Analyzer machines over two months ago.

The breakdown of the two important machines has impacted negatively on the daily attendance at the Out Patient Department (OPD) of the hospital.

Mr Andrews Adjei Annan, Head of Laboratory Department of the Hospital in an interview at Agona Swedru said that patients, mostly pregnant women and others with various diseases which laboratory tests are required are referred to private laboratories.

He said basic laboratory investigations carried out on pregnant women who are due for labour and surgery at the theater or on admission at maternity ward cannot be done.

Mr Annan said these machines are also used to check the new born babies and mothers who were in critical condition in order to refer to doctors for emergency treatment.

He said the laboratory work has become very difficult due to the malfunctioning machines.

Mr Annan said the two machines were donated by the National AIDS Control Programme in 2009 and needed immediate replacement to care for clients of the health facility.

Mr Annan said the management of the hospital has officially written to Central Regional Health Directorate about the state of the machines.

He appealed to Non-Governmental Organizations, financial institutions and corporate bodies to come to the aid of the hospital.
