Mr Kewura added that the location of the ambulance shown in the video is actually the premises of the manufacturing company.
“It has come to the National Ambulance Service, a viral video circulating on social media , of an ambulance in Dubai belonging to the Government of Ghana, which is purported to being sold in that country.
“The said ambulance is found on the premises of the company, which is manufacturing the ambulances.”
According to the statement, the new ambulances will soon be shipped to Ghana.
