In the wake of pressures being mounted on the government to acquire enough ambulances for the country, a Ghanaian writer has said that unlike Former President Atta Mills and Former Veep Paa Kwesi Arthur who were luckier enough to be carried in Car boot and Pick Up respectively, the president of Ghana, Nana Addo Danquah Akufo Addo would be carried in a tricycle popularly known as ‘Abobo Yaa’ should he fail to acquire ambulances for the country.

Adu Sarpeah, a writer at GHbase.com, one of the top 10 entertainment news websites in Ghana, made this comment when he saw a question on the front-page of the July 2, 2018 edition of The Daily Searchlight newspaper which asked Ghanaians what they would be transported in should they take ill. “The ringing lesson we refuse to learn: P.V Obeng – Taxi, Mills – Car boot, Amissah Arthur – Pick Up, What about you?” the newspaper asked.

Sarpeah prayed that Ghanaian Politicians should be hit with emergencies in order to enjoy the system they have created. “Our politicians know no mercy but thankfully, God isn’t a Nigerian. He’ll struck them unexpectedly like Amissah and co. Off late, they don’t fall sick like Mills for Ghana to waste tax payers money on them. God clicks, then boom, he’s dead.” he added.

Musician Kwaw Kese, other celebrities and fans wish that Politicians taste the state of health delivery in Ghana as their deaths through the system would call for its improvement.

According to reports, 30 million Ghanaians are served with 55 ambulances which has led to the cause of deaths including former presidents that could have been prevented.

Paul Victor Obeng, a politican who chaired the National Development Planning Committee was carried in a taxi when he was to be rushed to the hospital. Former President of Ghana, the late Arthur Mills is reported to have been put in a car boot when he took ill at the seat of government. Former Vice President Amissah Arthur was denied all the luxurious cars parked and thrown into a pick-up when he collapsed at a gym center.

Ghana’s health care delivery has come under public scrutiny in recent times with series of events that seem not to end soon. A 70-year old man died after four hospitals rejected him. He gave up the ghost when the last Hospital told him there was no bed. Musician Kwaw Kese who lost a baby few days ago described the Children’s Ward of the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital as synonymous to Nsawam Prison. In Kumasi, a pregnant mother and her baby died because they could not raise a ‘Doctor Motivation Fee’ of GHS 500 (Approximately US$105).

Despite few health workers working with compassion, dedication and serve as hope to the sector, Ghanaians are still in a state of despair as everyone does not know when he/she would have to dial 193.
