“Mr. President, I want to assure you that tonight, I will sleep and I will beg for permission to be late tomorrow,” he jokingly said while speaking at the commissioning of some 307 ambulances for the country on Tuesday, January 28, 2020.
Speaking at the commissioning of the ambulances, the Health Minister said many accused him and the government of having misplaced priorities at the time because government rather launched the zipline drone services instead of providing ambulances.
“During the deployment of the drones, I took a lot of bashing from Parliament and other media platforms who complained that we don’t have ambulances but we are deploying drones to fly blood and other medical supplies. But I kept on telling people that the President will deliver on his promises. Mr. President, you have justified my explanation,” an elated Health Minister said.
