Nsiah Gyabaah was full of praise for the gas company and the fact that a dream conceived is becoming a reality.“There is a saying that he who brings health brings life and therefore the importance of a hospital, even if it’s a clinic to a community such as ours, is a good venture, therefore it is with pride and excitement that I see this dream of getting a hospital for our university becoming a reality,” he said.
