-The former presidential staffer has slammed the Okyenhene for narrating the details of Amissah-Arthur's death
- The Okyenhene has recounted how the former vice president was thrown to the bucket of a pick-up because there was no ambulance
- Stan Dogbe says the 'coloured story' by the Okyenhene is unfortunate
Just days after the Okyenhene revealed details of Amisah-Arthur's death at the Air force Gym, a former presidential staffer under the erstwhile Mahama administration, has lashed out at him for narrating such a 'coloured story'.
YEN.com.gh had reported on how the Okyenhene had given a detailed account of how the late former vice president was thrown onto the bucket of a pick-up vehicle to the 37 military Hospital because there was no ambulance available.
In fact, the Okyenhene revealed that after attempts to resuscitate the collapsed former vice president, failed efforts got them rushing him to the hospital in the midst of no ambulance around.
The narration by the respected chief irked Stan Dogbe who blamed him for failing to convey the late Amissah-Arthur on his 'luxury vehicle'.
"He had a luxury vehicle there, and many others had their cars there, if he had a good heart and a spirit of helping others, maybe; just maybe, he would have sent him to the hospital in his car," he wrote.
Commenting on the absence of an ambulance, this is what Stan Dogbe had to say:
"Which gym in this country has a standby ambulance anyway? Your son, Nana Addo is watching on as the National Ambulance Service collapses... deal with it and leave the family of our late boss to mourn their son, husband, grandpa, father, uncle, and relation."
Reports by the World Health Organisation and Ghana Health Service show that about 70 percent of all emergency deaths in Ghana are due to the unprofessional way(s) by which patients are handled by their loved ones who often whisk them in with panic and fear.
