Member of Parliament for Ningo Prampram, Sam Nartey George has revealed that the new ambulances procured and commissioned by the Akufo-Addo led administration won't last.
According to Sam George, this would happen because of the bad nature of Ghanaian roads in the various constituencies would destroy the ambulances in no time.
“If that ambulance travels on the road five times, the ambulance will break down,” he said.
Speaking on TV3, he stated that in his constituency for instance, the roads were very bad and it would have an effect on the life span of the ambulance.

“The ambulances have a lifespan of five years and that is how come you must have a cycle of constantly replacing the ambulances. Government bringing in these ambulances is not the biggest intervention,” he said.
“It is one thing having ambulances and it is another thing maintaining them.”
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.
