The National Ambulance Service of Ghana has rebutted the allegations circulating on social media that one ambulance belonging to the government is on sale in Dubai.
According to the service, the ambulance in the viral video is part of other ambulances being procured by the government of Ghana.
“It has come to the attention of the National Ambulance Service that a viral video circulating on social media shows an ambulance in Dubai belonging to the Government of Ghana that is purported to be sold in that country.’’
“We wish to state that the ambulance in question is one of the 26 Toyota Hiace ambulances being procured by the government, through the Ministry of Health, and being funded by the World Bank,’’ the statement sighted by 1Family Radio indicated.
“The said ambulance is found on the premises of the company, which is manufacturing the ambulances. It is therefore not true that the ambulance is there for sale,’’ the statement noted.
“The manufacturing processes are over, and very soon the ambulance will be shipped into Ghana.’’
“We therefore entreat the general public to disregard the video in circulation and the commentary made by the person who made the video,’’ the service added.
