YVONNE NELSON BLASTS PRESIDENT AKUFO-ADD0 FOR TURNING AMBULANCE DISTRIBUTION INTO FUNFAIR

Actress, Yvonne Nelson has called out President Nana Akufo-Addo for turning government’s long over due responsibility into funfair.

According to the sexy screen diva it was absolutely unnecessary for the presidency to design fliers about simple commissioning and distribution of the ambulance.

The actress and movie producer stated that the ambulances should have been distributed long ago to help save our dying health system. So if after so many years they are finally performing their responsibilities, there was no need to politicise it.

In a tweet Yvonne Nelson said the Ghanaians have lost if they see nothing wrong with the designing posters for the commissioning and distribution of the ambulances.

She wrote

“How on earth are we designing posters for the commissioning and distribution of OUR ambulances that should have been sent ages ago to help save Ghanaians! Enough of the POSTERS. This aint a MOVIE! Our Health system sucks! We’ve lost our way!”.

Yvonne’s comments come after President Nana Addo shared a purposely designed artwork ahead of the commissioning and  distribution of ambulances.

Sharing photos from a special ceremony on the President’s official social media platforms, he wrote:

“On Tuesday, 28th January, 2020, I commissioned and presented 307 brand new, state-of-the-art ambulances, fitted with advanced life support equipment and tracking devices, to be distributed to 275 constituencies, i.e. 1-Constituency-1-Ambulance, to be managed by the National Ambulance Service, and the remainder of 32 ambulances to the headquarters of the Service. This is the single largest presentation of ambulances made to the Ghana Ambulance Service, since its establishment in 2004.

As against the scenario whereby 1 ambulance served approximately 524,000 people at the end of December 2016, today, we have a much-improved ratio of 1 ambulance serving approximately 84,000 people.”

President Akufo-Addo commissioned and distributed 307 brand new ambulances at a well-publicised ceremony at the Independence Square On Tuesday, 28th January, 2020. The ceremony was covered across the media landscape in Ghana.

In an audio available to nydjlive.com, MzBel is heard narrating events that unfolded after the NDC (the party she campaigned for) lost and how members of the NPP allegedly stormed her house asking that she come out to record a video and apologize to the president elect Nana Akuffo Addo.

The “E dey bee” hit-maker broke down in tears in the leaked audio and she vowed to apologize to Nana Akufo-Addo if that is what would make them leave her alone.

Mzbel also added that she since reported the incident to the police.
