YEN.com.gh earlier reported that the government had procured 275 ambulances to boost service delivery in the health sector.

The buses, however, came in batches and calls for the release of the final batch reached an all-time high after reports of pregnant women delivering babies in commercial vehicles and other unorthodox places surfaced online.

Again, prior to the arrival of the buses, former New Patriotic Party (NPP) flagbearer aspirant, Dr. Arthur Kennedy released a video in which he called on the government to ensure the swift transport of the ambulances to Ghana.

Before the ambulances are delivered to the 275 constituencies of the country, however, YEN.com.gh has learned that they are being branded with the names of the places of destination.

Photos of some of the branded vehicles have surfaced online and generated heated discussions on social media:

Anani wondered if it was another bus-branding scandal in the offing.

Otoo added that the cost of the branding should be determined soon.

Arthur, however, expressed her desire to work with the president because he is meticulous.

Yeboah expressed excitement at the arrival of the ambulances.

In other news, former Ghanaian football player and coach of the Asante Kotoko Sporting Club, Maxwell Konadu, has shared photos of himself online.

The photos showed the Rastafarian hair which became associated with him during his early days as a footballer.

The retired player was once a caretaker coach of the national football team and the U-23 side.

He was also part of the men’s national team that won the bronze medal at the 1992 Summer Olympics in Barcelona, Spain.

He also won the gold medal as assistant coach of the men’s Olympic team at the All-Africa Games in Maputo, Mozambique in 2011.
