Ghanaian filmmaker, Leila Djansi, has showered praises on President Nana Akufo-Addo for equipping the National Ambulance Service (NAS).
According to the outspoken filmmaker, the new ambulances brought into the country for the NAS are of international standard.
The vehicles, she explained, are fully equipped and complete with monitors and resuscitation kits.
In a tweet on Thursday, October 1, 2020, Djansi revealed that the world standard equipment coupled with the professionalism of the staff on one of the ambulances has saved her sister.
It is in appreciation of the service done to her sister and her family in general that the filmmaker took to social media to express her appreciation for President Akufo-Addo.
Djansi also prayed that hospitals in Ghana will become as equipped as the vehicles.
"Much appreciation to Ghana’s President @NAkufoAddo for the Ghana National Ambulance service. A fully equipped vehicle complete with monitors, resuscitation kits and professional staff. Def world standard. Saved my sister. Thank you! Hope the hospitals also become as equipped."
It will be recalled that President Akufo-Addo, on Tuesday, January 28, 2020, commissioned 307 ambulances procured by the government for distribution to all constituencies.
The ambulances were in fulfilment of a campaign promise by the Akufo-Addo dubbed one-constituency one-ambulance.
The commissioning of the ambulances saw mixed reactions from Ghanaians. While the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) saw it as a needless fanfare, others praised the government.
Ghana Medical Association's (GMA) General Secretary, Dr. Justice Yankson, 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.
