Special Development Initiative Minister Mavis Hawa Koomson has thrown a subtle jab at the National Democratic Congress of the opposition for their role in the procurement of some under-standard ambulances.
She said her ambulance is like a clinic, unlike the empty trucks dispatched to Ghana under the former administration of John Mahama.
“The ambulance is like a clinic because it has all the necessary equipment to function. We’re a result-oriented government so we’re not going to send empty trucks into the nation, calling them ambulances, “she said.
The Minister commented on the morning show of Adom FM, Dwaso Nsem, on Friday after the shipment to the nation of about 300 ambulances.
She said the initiative was to increase the National Ambulance Service’s activities and assist enhance Ghana’s emergency healthcare.
Minister of the Special Development Initiative said to prevent the Mahama government’s errors; she resulted a health expert delegation to Turkey to inspect the ambulances to make sure they fit for purpose.
She denounced the countrywide shortage of ambulances to transport individuals in trouble, arguing that the government of Akufo-Addo will provide an ambulance for each constituency.
As the state operates to tackle the country’s socio-economic requirements, she appealed for assistance.
