Japanese Govt Donates 12 more Ambulances to Nigeria by katty : August 01, 2018, 06:38:13 AM
Nigerian government has received the last batch of Ambulances donated by government of Japan. The Japanese government had in June 2017 donated 31 Ambulances to Federal Republic of Nigeria and promised to deliver 12 more to make it total of 43 ambulances. The remaining 12 have been delivered today Friday 27th July, 2017.

The Minister of Health, Prof. Isaac Adewole, while receiving the vehicles on behalf of Federal Government in Abuja said that, the donation was aimed at enhancing healthcare delivery system in Nigeria.



Adewole said “ We sincerely appreciate the Japanese Government in keeping to her promise on provision of the remaining 12 Ambulances as was said last year. We also acknowledge and commend the Japanese government for supporting the training of the nurses and drivers that would mann the vehicles”.

“The provision of these ambulances to our Tertiary Health Institutions across the country will ensure that emergency cases requiring ambulance service are taken care of promptly”, Adewole said.

In his welcome address, the Permanent Secretary, FMOH, Alh. Abdullahi Abdulaziz Mashi said that donation of the Ambulances would contribute immensely to the Federal Government’s efforts to strengthen the National Emergency Response Programme

Speaking at the occasion, the Japanese Ambassador, Yutaka Kikuta said that the ambulances were meant to be distributed to Tertiary Health Institutions in Nigeria.

Kikuta said “Japan is a country which keeps her words, we are gathered here today to mark the delivery of the remaining 12 ambulances in fulfilment of the promise made a year ago”

“This project is particularly unique because ambulance mostly serve those in very critical condition when the availability of an ambulance and rapid response could mean the difference between life and death” , Kikuta said.

The Japanese Ambassador explained that health is one of the main focuses of the government of Japan in its Official Development Assistance (ODA) to Nigeria. He said the Government of Japan through its community-based Grant Assistance is providing primary healthcare facilities and potable water in the rural communities.
