Abandoned to die: Ghana ambulance investigates case of negligence PDF Print E-mail

In an interview with Keminni Amanor, the Deputy CEO, Ghana Ambulance Service, Dr. Joseph Atiah Akamah disclosed that, the occurrence is not an isolated case adding that hospitals fail to accept certain patients brought in by the ambulance service especially those without any relative accompanying them. He explained that it posed a major challenge for the smooth running of the service. Dr. Atiah Akamah presumed that the crew had perhaps exhausted all alternatives hence the need to wait for the outcome of the investigation.

In response to this, Benjamin Otoo, Ashanti Regional Director for the department of Social Welfare said, that no hospital especially the police hospital has any excuse to reject anybody in need of health care whether identified or not.

Burkina lessons not for Ghana but for "sit-tight" African presidents- Chambas PDF Print E-mail

Mohammed Ibn Chambas, Envoy to the United Nation's Secretary, General Ban Ki Moon said it is very unlikely for the civilian uprising which happened in Burkina Faso to happen in Ghana.

If anything, Mr Chambas said the lessons were for "sit-tight" presidents in Africa who have refused to give up power.

"The lessons [from Burkina Faso] are not for countries like Ghana and Senegal, which are becoming fairly matured in their democracies.

"The lesson is for the sit-tight presidents in Africa. They must begin to read the scripts in Burkina Faso," he cautioned while discussing the crisis in Burkina Faso on Joy FM's Ghana Connect programme.

Unlike in Burkina Faso where entrenched clauses and presidential terms are changed by a mere vote in Parliament, amending Ghana's constitution is a bit onerous, Ibn Chambas noted.

Nigerians killed in Bauchi state cash machine blast PDF Print E-mail

At least 10 people have been killed in a bomb blast as they queued to withdraw money from a cash machine in northern Nigeria, residents have told the BBC. Security operatives say a female suicide bomber was responsible for the attack in Azare, Bauchi state.

No group has said it carried out the attack but suspicion is likely to fall on Islamist militant group Boko Haram. The group has killed thousands since 2009 in its campaign to set up an Islamic state in north-eastern Nigeria. Boko Haram has in the past claimed responsibility for similar attacks in the north.
