His comments follow the sad departure of Anthony Opoku Acheampong after he was refused medical treatment by seven hospitals due to lack of beds.

Mr Acheampong, 70, was refused admission by the M&J Medicare hospital, Korle Bu Polyclinic, Ridge Hospital, Police Hospital, the Trust Hospital, the La Polyclinic, before finally arriving at the LEKMA Hospital at Teshie where he died.

Commenting on the matter, Mr Mahama described the 'no bed syndrome' as "very sad development.'

He noted that when he was building infrastructure during his tenure, there were some who said: "we don’t eat roads! We don't eat hospitals!"
