An activist of the National Democratic Congress (NDC); Joseph Yammin says he is alarmed at the celebration of mediocrity in the country.
This follows the funfair that went along with the National, regional and in some cases, district recommissioning of some 307 ambulances.
Joseph Yammin, one time Deputy Ashanti regional minister in an interaction with Bernard Buachi of www.rawgist.com stated that it is sad to be Ghanaian at this time where the President continuously disgraces the nation with mediocrity. He could not fathom how 307 ambulances would be commissioned in a loud manner when monumental structures built or started by former President John Mahama are left to rot.
He cited terminal 3, saying it has not been commissioned although it is winning international awards for the country in the aviation industry. He also mentioned the Legon Hospital, Afari Hospital, Kumawu Hospital, Fomena Hospital “which have all been left to rot”. He said Fumso and Obuasi E blocks have also been “left to the mercy of the bushes but our President will be smiling to commission ambulances”.
President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo last Tuesday commissioned and distributed 307 ambulances recently procured to help augment operations of the National Ambulance Service (NAS).
The new ambulances are to be distributed in all 275 constituencies in Ghana in fulfilment of the government’s 2016 election campaign to help improve emergency healthcare delivery.
