The joke in Ghana’s Political arena is becoming very intense as each day passes by and it’s just so mind-blowing.
Days ago, Ghana’s president, Nana Addo Danquah commissioned some Ambulances for the discharge of health services.
The President commissioned some 307 ambulances for distribution to the 275 constituencies in the country.
However, there are reports that the various Regional Coordinating Councils, as well as local authorities, are also re-commissioning the ambulances.
A video that has been trending online has one district or municipality celebrating the arrival of their ambulance.
That will definitely be wastage of resources on the part of the state’s coffers.
The Ho Central branch of the opposition NDC has rebuked such a move.
They described the recommissioning ceremony held in the Volta Region as an “exercise in mediocrity.”
“Though these ambulances will play critical roles in our health care delivery system, it is not the end in itself to the myriad of problems that confront the health sector hence much money should not be wasted on this pomp and pageantry before these items are handed over,” a statement from the Ho Central NDC stated.
The statement signed by Sefadzi Agama, NDC Ho Central Constituency Communication officer, chastised government over the issue insisting that;
“the intention of the Regional Minister is a loud testament to the fact that the Nana Akufo-Addo-led government has achieved very little despite the huge resource at its disposal hence making a festival out of this ambulance distribution.”
