The Chaplain for St. Gregory Catholic Hospital at Gomoa-Buduburam in the Central Region, Rev. Fr. Daniel Ganu has said one major challenge for the hospital is insecurity.
According to him, because the Catholic hospital in the area happens to be the first point of call in case of accidents and disturbance resulting in wounds there is huge pressure on the facility.
“At the camp (Buduburam) often you hear either people are fighting in the night and you get people stabbing themselves, motorbikes hitting on people, robbery cases happening here and there.
When it happens this is the facility they rush in,” the Chaplain told Capitalnewsonline.com in an exclusive interview.
He continued “When they come in, they come with all the hooliganism and they want to push the staff to do what they want to be done.
For instance, once they have come in if they are not getting what they want to be done then they want to vent their anger on the staff. Beating them up and threatening here and there and it seems like some rampant kind of situation.”
Rev. Ganu said the suggestion in the public domain for reconstructing the area should be given serious and immediate attention by authorities.
“The area has become something like a slum or a place like a hideout for criminals so to speak. So my appeal to the government and to the people who matter is for them to come and look at the reconstruction of the camp,” he pleaded.
The Chaplain further said though there is once a while exercise of police whoop in the area it only calms up the situation temporarily.
“We are talking about a permanent solution to the problem. We are calling on the government to come to the aid of the hospital by reconstructing the area,” he reiterated.
