President Akufo-Addo today, Tuesday, January 28, 2020, commissioned ambulances procured by the government for distribution to all constituencies in fulfillment of his one-constituency one-ambulance campaign promise.
The event, which critics including members of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) describe as a “needles fanfare”, will take place at the forecourt of State House in Accra at 11:00 am.
Announcing the commissioning at the Sunday Meet-the Press encounter, Information Minister, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah charged the National Ambulance Service to properly maintain the ambulances.

“Government expects the Ambulance Service to maintain this investment to ensure longevity. It is further expected that this injection will be put to good use to serve the good people of Ghana and add to ongoing efforts to secure livelihoods,” he noted.
Meanwhile, the Ghana Medical Association (GMA) General Secretary, Dr. Justice Yankson, has described as unprecedented, the distribution of 307 ambulances to various communities to assist in quality health delivery.
Dr. Yankson lauded the government for the initiative saying that Ghana in its history has not recorded anything close to procuring even two hundred ambulances at a go.
“Generally speaking, in terms of the numbers and then even in terms of the operational scope and the way it is going to be managed, I think that this is a very big improvement over the years,” he said.
