It is soo sad that some communities in this country do not have an ambulance but an ambulance could be used to carry cement in the name of testing. The question is: Who seeks to it that ambulances with minor faults are quickly repaired and returned to our health facility for immediate use? The answer to this question is necessary because innocent Ghanaians are dying because of insufficient ambulances in the country.
The Public Relation Officer of the National Ambulance Service, Mr. Simmons Yussif Kewura yesterday, 2nd June 2021, came out with a statement that the said ambulance was not in their custody but rather with the mechanic shop known as Nana Ofosu Gear Box Specialist. The mechanic also knowing very well that there is no proper check-in in the country drove that car towards the Mallam-Kasoa-Winneba road and used it for his private business thus carrying cement.
It was upon this that Tilapia The Cartoonist drew the cartoon below this morning, Thursday 3rd June 2021, to complement what is actually happening at the National Ambulance Service. As for mechanics when you leave your cars with them for a long time without check on them, they mostly use it for their own business.
The National Ambulance Service has explained that the said ambulance was still under the supervision of their supplier but some Ghanaians still believe that they should have put up a proper check on all those faulty vehicles because it is not the manufacturer name on the car but rather "National Ambulance Service".
Tilapia actually named the ambulance "The National Cement Ambulance!" where the patients are the cement being carried into the truck.
Check out reactions from some Ghanaians below:
A Facebook user known as Abeezilgate De Onetil reacted that "How I wish we could have the mindset of the white when it comes to politics. It is all about love for the people and commitment to the nation".
Another Facebook user known as Bashiru Mylord also said that "There are some people in the country with bad attitude".
