According to him, he, together with some of his friends were cycling and they had a little accident and they had a designate ambulance with them.

“The other day I was cycling and I had a little accident and we actually had a designate ambulance with us," he said.

Samini, hence, reiterated his call on the electorate to vote for President Akufo-Addo and the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the December 7 elections.

“We cycled all the way from Sogakope to the Mole national park, I had to stop at Dambai. The rational here is that I don’t know when in Ghana’s history where we could have ambulances like that so we could have one designated to us.


“But for that ambulance, I would have had a serious problem and I have a scar to show [pointing to the corner of his left eye] but there was an ambulance and it took care of me right there and then before they took me to the hospital.

“The ambulance is something I’ve heard of and I’ve experienced it and so I know if something is happening in some remote corner at least one ambulance is going to get there,” he said.

On Tuesday, January 28, 2019, President Akufo-Addo commissioned and presented 307 new, state-of-the-art ambulances to the National Ambulance Service, in fulfilment of his 2016 campaign pledge.

The 307 ambulances were fitted with advanced life support equipment and tracking devices and 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.
