Recently it became public knowledge that the entire country of Ghana with its roughly 27m citizens were sharing about 55 ambulances. How the math works out on that is too ridiculous to even attempt.
As is usual in Ghana the story made headlines for about a day or three then everyone moved on to the next irrelevant story.
Musician/Comedian A Plus has angrily blasted the Ghanaian media after a recent accident in which injured people could be seen lying around with no emergency services available to help them.
The accident, which clearly illustrates how the lack of ambulances leads to unnecessary deaths every single day, led to the rapper ranting on social media attacking the media for never covering the issues that are of importance.
“The media won’t talk about this. They will spend 3 days talking about Hajia Fati slapping one journalist.” he angrily posted.
“Herh, I know the stupid media won’t join me to put pressure on government to provide ambulances to every community. Rather, they will take this post and give it useless headlines like their useless lives.”
A Plus has long derided the Ghanaian media for being too unprofessional and for focusing on the wrong issues.
Check out his post below….
“A country of over 27 million people vote for 275 people who buy themselves the latest SUVs (V8s) worth hundred thousand dollars or more and give all the 27 million people they promise to serve only 50 outdated ambulances. ??? But you see, I don’t blame the politician. I blame the people who will get up again on election day and vote for these politicians without making demands which will benefit themselves, their children and the country as a whole.
If you are an educated person; doctor, teacher, lecturer, legal practitioner, police, soldier, engineer, farmer, etc and you retire once in 35 years of service and paid peanut as end of service benefit, but stand in the scorching sun or rain, to vote for a politician who promise to serve, but retires every 4 years, takes home huge retirement benefits, only to begin another 4 year term the following morning and you think you are not being stupid that is your problem. When I talk some people say “Kwame your political future is bright with the NPP, slow down.” I beg 2020 I’m contesting a seat in parliament as an independent candidate. I’m the people’s representative in parliament. My future is not with any party biaaa. My future is with the people!!! Take your party. ????
The media won’t talk about this. They will spend 3 days talking about Hajia Fati slapping one journalist.
Herh, I know the stupid media won’t join me to put pressure on government to provide ambulances to every community. Rather, they will take this post and give it useless headlines like their useless lives. Sometime ago I used to explain myself. Never again!!! I don’t owe anyone an explanation. Do any headline you want. Tweakai!!! You think I care? Me I’m #halfmanhalfbosom ??? lying on my bed and playing with my hairy shoa balls. Deal with it…..???????”
