Member of Parliament (MP) for Manhyia South, Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh, aka Napo, has constructed a modern Ambulance Bay for the safe-keeping of an ambulance, donated by government through the Ministry of Special Initiatives.
It was built on the grounds of Manhyia Government Hospital and serves as the station for the paramedic crew in the constituency.
Napo, who doubles as the Minister of Education, in his address, said he valued the life of his constituents so he would readily provide key amenities to boost their health.
He said that critical life-saving healthcare is being significantly improved in the constituency.
Napo, who is a medical doctor, said the decision to build the ambulance bay would serve a useful purpose since the vehicle would be maintained at all times for reliable services, saying “an ambulance plays a crucial role as first responder in providing critical life-saving intervention when required in our communities.”
He called for high maintenance culture of the facility, saying, “It is my hope that this bay will be well maintained for the sustainability of quality healthcare delivery.”
The KMA Boss, Osei Assibey-Antwi, on his part, described Napo as a “God-sent leader for Manhyia South,” enumerating the MPs roles in developing the constituency.
According to him, Manhyia South has benefitted from school buildings, roads, health projects, water and sanitation, due to Napo’s visionary leadership style.
Osei-Assibey therefore implored the electorate to vote massively for President Akufo-Addo and Napo “to help sustain the free Senior High School (SHS) programme.”
Dr. Kamaru Deen Korku Hussein, Medical Superintendent, Manhyia Government Hospital, showered praises on Napo, describing him as a development-oriented leader.
