He called for a redirection of government spending in the development sectors such as agriculture and health. The whole of the Lower River Region, he said is without a hospital, whiles that of the Upper River Region too do not have one, despite how densely these regions are.
Many of our health facilities are lacking basic materials , the lack of which make life so difficult for the nurses and doctors . The leader of the biggest political party said even mere gloves are lacking making their job a challenge..
