Member of Parliament (MP) for Sene West, Twumasi Ampofo has said he nearly lost his seat in the 2016 Parliament elections because of the delay in providing an ambulance to the District hospital.

According to the Sene West legislator people went round saying that he has sold out the ambulance he had promised to provide to the District hospital.

“I was the one who promise to provide, Sene West District Hospital with an ambulance, so how I sell it out, I had to explain to you why the ambulance in coming, I am happy by the grace of God we now have it”.

He further pointed out that the ambulance would help everyone but he is not praying that anyone falls sick.

Mr. Twumasi Ampofo recounted that, when he became an MP he visited the District hospital and promised to get an ambulance for them, but the medical officers asked that he hold on with the buying of the ambulance since there is a national ambulance.

“Before you get a national ambulance you need to provide accommodation for the workers, and train them for two years, shed for the ambulance, again for the facility to be inspected, I worked on that and built the shed and rented an accommodation”.

Again, I got a shed for the Ghana National Fire Service, but there was a problem with the national ambulance, it had to be recalled, then I noticed that I had to buy ambulance for my district hospital to take care of the sick.

“So this has been the background to the delay of the ambulance I promised to donate to the district hospital; it is finally here”.
