Credit card loan

 

€ 18.8 million euros loan facility approved by the 7th parliament.

As we all know, the current parliament's term of office is coming to an end but that notwithstanding, it is still going on its duties.

The 7th parliament which is the current parliament now, has approved €18.8 million euros loan, to procure an additional 112 ambulances for the National Ambulance Service.

The loan facility is between the Government of Ghana represented by the Ministry of Finance and the Deutsche Bank AG, Frankfurt am main for an amount of €18,815,000 including Euler Hermes Premium guarantee to finance the supply of ambulances and related training and maintenance services.

According to the Ghana Ambulance Service, the country needs in excess of 1,000 ambulances to be able to provide pre-hospital care and handle the inter-facility transfer. They added that with these new 112 ambulances adding up to the 307 already having been distributed, Ghana will be almost half way through meeting the required ambulances with 419 new ambulances.

The question is, are the 112 new ambulances needed at this time, can't we use that €18.8 million euros loan facility to help in other sector of the economy rather than the Ambulance Service of Ghana?

I think as it is left with some few days, for this current parliament to be dissolved, they should be thinking of parking their documents from their offices as the 8th parliament takes over on 7th January, 2021 at 12:00am.

At first many people said that the 307 ambulances were as a result of the elections. What can we say about these 112 ambulances too.
