The Volta Regional Minister, Dr Archibold Letsa says there’s absolutely nothing wrong with another commissioning ceremony at the regional level for the new ambulances dispatched to the constituencies within the region.
On Tuesday, President Akufo-Addo graced a ceremony at the Black Star Square in Accra to hand over 307 state-of-the-art ambulances to the 275 constituencies across the country with the rest going to the National Ambulance Service secretariat.
Speaking at a commissioning ceremony at the Regional level to hand over the ambulances to the constituencies, Dr. Letsa accused persons opposed to the move of witchcraft and urged them to seek spiritual support.
“There’s nothing wrong with the ambulances coming to the Coordinating Council for us to receive them and hand them over to be taken care of by the constituencies. Any person who criticizes this has a problem, we need to take him to synagogue for deliverance. I think that when something good happens in our country we should be happy. If good things happen and we are not happy that is equivalent to witchcraft.”
Dr. Letsa added: “After the President Commissioned the ambulances he went to the Ho West Ambulance and inspected it. Soon after that news went round that the Ho West ambulance was missing, I don’t know whether it was spiritually missing of physically missing. But yesterday when the ambulances arrived in town, I went around town and I had calls. When people are wishing government well, they don’t want the people to know that the ambulances have arrived. I want to put on record that Ghana is a unitary state, we have the national, regional and district assembly levels.”
