Managing partner at Trent Legal Amansie Chambers and parliamentary aspirant for the Bekwai constituency in the Ashanti Region, Lawyer Ralph Poku Adusei, has heeded to the cry of indigenes of Bekwai by repairing their ambulance which broke down some months ago.
President Akufo-Addo, on Tuesday, 28th January, 2019, commissioned and presented three hundred and seven (307) new, state-of-the-art ambulances to the National Ambulance Service, in fulfilment of his 2016 campaign pledge.
The Bekwai constituency was one of the 275 constituencies across the country who received an ambulance. The ambulances were all “fitted with advanced life support equipment and tracking devices and they were to be managed by the National Ambulance Service.
However, nearly three years down the line, the Bekwai constituency has not been able to keep up with the demands to keep the ambulance in service. When the Bekwai constituency allotted ambulance developed its recent fault, mechanics pegged the repair works required at GHc 9,000.00.
Some concerned persons brought the development to the attention of Mr Poku-Adusei, and he immediately mobilized the money needed to repair the ambulance to keep it in service for the people of Bekwai.
“It is a delight to see our constituency’s ambulance back on the road and servicing the people of Bekwai and its environs.
“Government’s idea behind the one district one ambulance concept is a laudable one but when such issues of break down comes up, it is only right that we support in every way possible way to keep the policy running” Ralph Poku-Adusei said.
