OUR MANIFESTO: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
The Ministry of Special Development Initiatives has assured Ghanaians that the ambulances parked in front of the State House would be released latest by January 2020.
This information follows pressure from the Minority on Parliament’s Health Committee for the immediate release of the ambulances at the State House.
Public Relations Officer of the Social Development Ministry, Kabore Awudu Moro, said the delay in the distribution of the ambulances is to ensure that the needed logistics are in place when they are released.
“We are putting in place the structures that would ensure the ambulances are properly managed. And as I speak to you now the processes are on-going. And there are plans on the ground that we have put in place.
The distribution can be possible only after we have put everything in place and that will be in January 2020.”
He added that there are processes in place to fix number plates and trackers on the ambulances before they are distributed.
He added that personnel were undergoing training to manage the ambulances.
President Akufo-Addo in September 2019, announced the arrival of the first batch of ambulances meant for all 275 constituencies in the country.
The arrival of the ambulances forms part of the fulfilment of a promise made by President Nana Akufo-Addo and the NPP Government in the build-up to the 2016 general elections.
In other news, former president, Flt. Lt. Jerry John Rawlings, has called for the core values of comradeship to be re-centered in the heart and soul of political parties, as he believes truth should be central in everything in governance.
Rawlings lamented the fact that some politicians have specialised in the act of telling lies as a way of getting power.
He, however, called on politicians to understudy traditional leaders to appreciate the value of truth in leading a nation, stating that traditional customs do not allow traditional leaders to lie.
