Former Communication Minister, Dr Edward Omane Boamah has asked Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia to critically 'consider' the proposed project to use drones to distribute essential drugs and blood to remote areas of the country.
The Minority members of Parliament have kicked against the $12 million contract between government and Zipline International for the drones.
However, Government has debunked claims by the Minority that it was purchasing drones under the Ministry of Health Ghana Drone Delivery Project.
The Director General of the Ghana Health Service, Dr. Nsiah Asare also said government was not purchasing drones as widely speculated by the minority and sections of the media.
“We bear no risk for the installation, the operation is not to our cost, a contract is purely a service contract,” he stated.
But in a comment on his facebook wall, Omane Boamah asked Bawumia to "please consider the following":
1. Cost Benefit Analysis;
2. Cost Utility Analysis &
3. Cost Quality Analysis.
