Minister for Special Development Initiatives, Mavis Hawa Koomson, has pegged the cost of each of the 307 new ambulances procured at $133,000.
According to her, the amount for each of the ambulances includes all procurement processes and insurance.
“Each of the ambulances cost $133,000 with two years warranty and have been given a full premium insurance being handled by a local company,” she said.

Speaking in an interview on Asempa FM’s Ekosii Sen show, Madam Koomson said all the ambulances have fully been dispatched to their respective locations.
“All the Ambulances dispatched were fully furnished except for the 32 extra which will be sent to the office of the ambulance service, but claims of empty ones are palpable falsehood,” she added.
Meanwhile, she stressed all the ambulances would be taken to the regions for inventory before being taken to the Constituencies without any funfair on their arrival.
