For a country whose emergency healthcare provision is below standard, many have been wondering why any of its operators will stoop this low whilst recently a twelve-year-old lost his life due to the unavailability of ambulance vehicles.
Our national ambulance is now used to Carry cement somewhere in Gomoa East. What have we committed as a country? Is it a curse or something? 😭#FixTheSystem#FixTheCountry

The ambulances were officially commissioned to work and attend to health emergency situations in 2019 by President Akuffo-Addo.
They were assigned to each of the 275 constituencies under the One-Constituency-One-Ambulance-Policy. Seeing one transporting cement just doesn’t sit right with many people. Management of the Ghana Ambulance is yet to comment on the viral video.
