SVANI Ghana Limited, the authorized dealers in Renault vehicles in the country have received higher commendation for its contributions to nation building, by helping to facilitate quality healthcare delivery in the country.

The Ghanaian owned leading automobile company presented six ambulances to the Rebecca Foundation, and Mrs Rebecca Akufo-Addo, the First Lady of the Republic of Ghana, its founder subsequently presented the vehicles fitted with the relevant medical equipment to selected health institutions on Wednesday.

In an interview with Newsmen, Mr Richard Kwadwo Adu, the Assemblyman for Ntoase Electoral Area in the Wenchi Municipality noted the donation by SVANI Ghana Limited was an indication that the private sector had embraced President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s vision of developing the nation beyond aid and was ready to contribute in that respect.

The beneficiary health facilities of the ambulances  included the Osu Maternity Home, the Sakumono Community Hospital, the Valley View University hospital and the Rebecca Akufo-Addo PICU at the Korle-bu Teaching Hospital all in the Greater Accra Region.

Others are the West Gonja District Assembly Polyclinic in the Northern Region and the Okomfo Anokye Mother and Baby Unit in the Ashanti Region.

Mr Adu who is a former Wenchi constituency youth organiser of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) indicated that the government was getting private sector support towards national reconstruction because of good governance and the solid foundation the NPP government was laying, and praised Mr Thomas Svanikier, the Chief Executive Officer of SVANI for his vision to help build better Ghana.

“Mr Svanikier has truly demonstrated genuine sense of statesmanship, patriotism and love for nation”, the Assemblyman said, and rallied support from other private establishments to enable President Akufo-Addo to push the development of the nation to the next level.

He indicated that the government required active support from the private sector to achieve desirable results for its social intervention and transformational policies such as the Planting for Food and Jobs (PfFJs), One-District-One-Factory (IDIF), and the Rearing for Food and Jobs programme.

Mr Adu emphasised that improvements in key sectors like agriculture, education and health had the potential to transform the fortunes of the nation, and propel the country into middle income bracket, and called on the private sector as the engine of growth and development to invest into these sectors.
