The main opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) has claimed in a statement signed by its National Communication Officer Mr Sammy Gyamfi that the president is hoarding the ambulances in order to release them few months to December polls.
Two days ago, the National Ambulance Service, through the Ministry of Health, wrote to President Nana Akufo-Addo imploring him not to releases the ambulances since, some technical issues, were still yet to be resolved.
According to the NDC, however, the Akufo-Addo government is just playing games as usual with Ghanaians.
The “mediocre” and "heartless" government of President Nana Akufo-Addo and the New Patriotic Party (NPP) is “toying” with the lives of Ghanaians by deliberately refusing to distribute the 275 ambulances procured with taxpayers’ money because they want to wait until a few months to the December 2020 polls to release them to make a political statement.
Like many discerning minds, it is now clear to us that that the several conflicting excuses of the government on this matter are contrived and deliberately calculated to conceal the real intention of the government in this matter; which is to delay the distribution of the ambulances until a few months to the 2020 general elections for cheap electoral gain”, the statement claimed as captured
