Napo has constructed an ultra-modern Ambulance Bay for the safe-keeping of an ambulance, donated by government, through the Ministry of Special Initiatives.
Situated on the grounds of Manhyia Government Hospital, the ambulance bay, which boasts of modern amenities, would be also serve as the station for the paramedic crew.
Napo, who doubles as the Education Minister, in his address, said he valued the life of his constituents so he would readily provide key amenities to boost their health.

“Ambulance play crucial role as first responders in providing critical life-saving intervention when required in our communities”, he said, attracting wild applause.
Napo 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 electorates to vote massively for President Nana Akufo-Addo and Napo “to help sustain free Senior High School (SHS) programme”.
In related development, Napo has also donated 20 brand new hospital beds to the Manhyia Government Hospital to help in the provision of quality healthcare to patients.
