A Former Deputy Minister of Information and Tourism, Mr James Agyenim-Boateng has described the construction of the Ghana Award House as a misplaced priority.
That he said was because the President promise of building 88 new hospitals across the country still remains a promise and does not see why the President would cut sod for the construction of an Award House.
“Last year you promised to build 88 hospitals and it still remains a promise; you’ve started none. Yet you’ve ‘cut the sod for the commencement of the “Ghana Award House”’? This is a misplaced priority!”
