Officials of NHIS in Sekondi taking the residents through the registration

Members of the Sekondi Landing Beach Committee are using part of the proceeds accrued from the sale of pre-mix fuel to register people within some communities in the Sekondi constituency for the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS). 

The free NHIS registration, which is targeting about 2,000 inhabitants living in some communities in Sekondi, will cost GH¢14,000.

The beneficiary communities include Adiembra, Kweikuma, Nkotompo, Ekuasi, Esaaman, Agyamoa-Bekam, Baka-Ekyir, Sekondi Anaafo and Sekondi Ase. 

At a brief ceremony to officially commence the free NHIS registration exercise, Nana Kofi Essuon, chief fisherman of Sekondi, stated that the opportunity the Landing Beach Committee members were presenting was not only available to members of a particular political party as was being alleged, but residents of Sekondi. 

“This is not something we are doing for political points so anyone, irrespective of the person’s political affiliation, can take advantage of it so long as they are residents of Sekondi,” he said. 

He commended members of the committee for using parts of the profit from the sale of the pre-mix fuel for development projects in most fishing communities throughout the country. 

The Sekondi chief fisherman disclosed that plans were also afoot to use some proceeds from the sale of the fuel to construct a clinic for the people of Sekondi. 

The Metropolitan Chief Executive (MCE) of Sekondi-Takoradi, Capt. (Rtd) Anthony Cudjoe, advised parents in Sekondi to make sure they gave birth to the number of children they could cater for. 

“Please try to practise family planning so that you will not give birth to children you can’t educate properly,” he entreated them. 

Capt. (rtd) Cudjoe, who is also the NDC parliamentary candidate for Sekondi, stressed that the government attached so much importance to the health of the people which was evidenced in the health-related projects it had undertaken nationwide.
