Private legal practitioner, Nana Obiri Boahen has pledged an amount of Thousand Ghana Cedis (Ghc2,000) towards the renovation of the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital (KATH).
Dubbed: ‘Heal Komfo Anoakye’, the private legal practitioner commended the Overlord of the Ashanti Kingdom, His Royal Majesty Otumfuo Osei Tutu II for the initiative.
The ‘Heal Komfo Anokye’ is being spearheaded by the King to mobilize $10 million to renovate the 70-year-old facility.
Speaking on Wontumi TV, Nana Obiri Boahen admonished other traditional rulers to emulate the King in their respective regions and localities.
‘For my part, as a full-blooded Bono person, I am promising to give two thousand cedis towards the project every year until I go to the grave. I don’t have enough money, but I’ll make sure that every year, I donate to this Heal Komfo Anokye fund.
“I am also pleading with other kings like Nayiri, Ya-Na, Ga-Mantse, and Yanbonwura to do the same and I will come to support them”, the outspoken lawyer stated.
In the King’s address at the official launch of the Asantehene’s fundraising campaign in aid of the comprehensive renovation of KATH Old Blocks as part of the legacy projects to mark the 25th anniversary of the King’s enstoolment, His Royal Majesty bemoaned the sorry state of the Teaching Hospital.
He implored all residents in the region to make it a sole commitment to assist the renovation drive of the facility by donating cash sums periodically.
“I am appealing to my subjects and residents in the region, that if every household donates at least GH¢200 a month towards this project, we will be able to successfully renovate the hospital. Komfo Anokye whom the hospital was named after never got ill, so why should we watch on for the hospital that has healed many be deemed as sick, needing healing?”.
