He made these remarks following NDCs demand for the release of ‘Idle’ Ambulances meant for distribution to constituencies across the country, which according to the party cannot continue to remain parked and idle, accusing the government of “toying with precious lives”.
The NDC has also rejected the reasons offered by duty bearers as basis for the delayed distribution of the ambulances, saying the public deserves better from government.
But according to Dr. Kokofu, the NDC are not in the right position to pressure the NPP into distribution of the Ambulances when their records show they failed to provide it to Ghanaians during their reign.
He revealed, the NDC is aware that, matters of health are very essential to the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and had been part of their campaign always hence considers their allegations as a ‘useless’ one.
Dr. Kokofu chastised the opposition (NDC) for their ''noise'' claiming, the so called ambulances brought into the country by them were all unqualified to be used as ambulance but rather commercial buses.
“I’m even shocked to hear the NDC commenting on issues of health,when during their time they procured some 50 out of 200 such ambulances they promised Ghanaians''
''These 50 ambulances when they arrived were not even well-equipped; had no seat, bed ..... the ambulances were empty caskets''
''When the issue was getting worse , it took the NDC over 6months and finally had to invite a German company to access the empty ambulances to put them in shape for it to start operation for the benefit of Ghanaians''
''The advice the Germans gave was to use those ambulances for passenger cars instead'' the Former Bantama Constituency MP, Dr. Henry Kwabena Kokofu indicated.
