One of the newly commissioned ambulances of President Akufo-Addo just got involved in an accident in Accra.
A social media user who was at the scene took to Facebook to recount how the accident occurred.
Sharing a photo from the scene in a popular Facebook group, Tell It All, he wrote;
“So this trotro driver hit one of the ambulances that was commissioned today? Ok, let me drink my water and come wai”.
President Nana Addo commissioned and distributed 307 brand new ambulances today.
Sharing photos from a special ceremony, he wrote;
“On Tuesday, 28th January, 2020, I commissioned and presented 307 brand new, state-of-the-art ambulances, fitted with advanced life support equipment and tracking devices, to be distributed to 275 constituencies, i.e. 1-Constituency-1-Ambulance, to be managed by the National Ambulance Service, and the remainder of 32 ambulances to the headquarters of the Service. This is the single largest presentation of ambulances made to the Ghana Ambulance Service, since its establishment in 2004.
As against the scenario whereby 1 ambulance served approximately 524,000 people at the end of December 2016, today, we have a much-improved ratio of 1 ambulance serving approximately 84,000 people.”
