The ambulances parked in front of the State House will be released in January 2020, the Ministry of Special Development Initiatives has assured.
This assurance follows calls by the Minority side on Parliament’s Health Committee for the immediate release of the ambulances at the State House.
The Public Relations Officer of the Ministry, KaboreAwudu Moro, who made this known in an interview with citinewsroom.com said the delay in the distribution of the ambulances is to enable the provision of the needed logistics to ensure that the ambulances are well-managed when they are released.
He said there are processes in place to fix number plates and trackers on the ambulances before they are distributed.
Kabore also added that personnel to manage the ambulances are also being trained.
In September 2019, President Nana Akufo-Addo announced the arrival of the first batch of ambulances meant for all 275 constituencies in the country.
The arrival of the ambulances forms part of the fulfilment of a promise made by President Nana Akufo-Addo and the NPP Government in the build-up to the 2016 general elections.
Mr. Awudu Moro also expressed shock at the Minority’s call, saying it was done with negative intentions.
