Ghanaians across the country will finally heave a sigh of relief as the much-anticipated ambulances promised to be procured by government for the 275 constituencies is finally coming to fruition.

The Akufo-Addo led administration as part of their 2016 manifesto promised to acquire an ambulance each for constituencies in all regions in the country.

The promise was stemmed from the numerous deaths recorded from the various regions due to the lack of ambulances.

The buses which were bought in batches generated a lot of backlashes from members of the opposition NDC after some of them were parked at the forecourt of Parliament.

Concerns were raised that the governing party was playing politics with the buses since they expected them to distribute the already procured ones while they waited for the remainder.

In response, however, President Akufo-Addo explained that he did not want to be accused of being bias and thus was going to wait for all the buses to arrive.

Health Minister, Agyeman Manu also pleaded with government explaining that some personnel were undergoing training in order to provide emergency health services when called upon.

The ambulances, numbering 307 have all been parked at the Black Star Square in Accra awaiting to be finally distributed to the various constituencies.
