Ghana needs visionary, incorruptible leaders – Rt Rev. Martey

Ghana needs visionary and incorruptible leaders with great integrity to transform the nation, the Moderator of the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church of Ghana (PCG), Rt Rev. Prof. Emmanuel Martey, has stated.
In his view, Ghana abounds with competent human and rich natural resources, but the people are suffering from economic hardships due to corrupt and inefficient leadership.

Rt Rev. Martey, therefore, urged leadership to commit themselves to the development of the nation by eliminating corruption and waste from the system.

“They must also attach seriousness to the governance of the country, he stated.

The moderator made the pronouncements at the inauguration of a GH¢1million Trinity Community Hospital at Ashaiman last weekend.
The facility is jointly owned by the Presbyterian Church of Ghana and the Community Hospitals Group (CGH).

Rt Rev. Martey advised the various political parties to stop the blame game and find an antidote to the problems hindering the development of the nation.

He stressed that the PCG had decided to partner the CHG to promote quality healthcare delivery for the people of Ashiaman and beyond.

The moderator enjoined the hospital staff and patrons of the facility to not underestimate the spiritual dimension at the hospital.
He admonished patients to adhere to medical advice and refrain from self-medication in order to be healthy at all times.

The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Community Hospitals Group, Mr Akwasi Acquah, said he was motivated by the desire to have health care on the doorstep of people, hence the decision to partner organisations, including churches, which had land available for such facilities.

He said the Trinity Community Hospital was the third of the health facilities established by the CHG, and added that the others were located at Ashongman and Akyem Oda, as well as a modern morgue at Oda.

Mr Acquah stated that the Trinity Community Hospital had 30 staff members including three medical doctors and a number of nurses.

He said the hospital had facilities such as a 50-bed capacity out-patients department, a number of wards, a fully equipped laboratory, an operation theatre, a modern diagnosis centre, eye and dental units, administration, maternity and emergency blocks and a number of consulting rooms.
