Member of Parliament (MP) for Bawku Central, Mahama Ayariga, has procured an ambulance to support healthcare delivery in his constituency.
Over the weekend, the lawmaker took delivery of the ambulance, which is expected to serve the people of Bawku and Bolgatanga.
This is in honour of a promise he made to support the two communities, whose health facilities have just two ambulances to work with in the whole of Upper East region.

Earlier this year, Mr. Ayariga held separate meetings with the Bawku Municipal Chief Executive, Hawa Ninchema and her MCD, and the Management of the Bawku Presbyterian Hospital to discuss plans on how to improve the situation.
This was after several failed attempts to get ambulances from the Ghana Ambulance Service to support health facilities in the region.
However, the Bawku Central MP has now decided to take matter into his own hands by procuring an ambulance from his pocket to help support healthcare delivery.
The lawmaker took delivery of the ambulance over the weekend and is expected to donate it to the relevant health management stakeholders in the Bawku Municipality in the coming days.
Mahama Ayariga (born 24 May 1974) is a lawyer and politician in Ghana. He belongs to the National Democratic Congress.
He was the Minister of Information and Media Relations and the Minister of Youth and Sports under the John Dramani Mahama administration.
