Parliament on Tuesday December 11, passed the Services agreement between Flyzipline and government for the use of drone technology to supply emergency medical supplies by a vote of 102-58.
The service agreement had been the subject of a tussle in the house with the Minority describing it as a misplaced priority while the government believes it is a step in the right direction.
The Minority Spokesperson on Finance, Cassiel Ato Forson has described the deal as a rip off and something the president must intervene in, he also thinks the Vice President is leading this country unto a path of unrighteousness because obviously, we can use $27.8 million for something better.
The government however believes the drones delivery system will save Ghanaian lives and reduce wastage in the health sector.
