Ghana Records 517 Road Accident Deaths Between 2020 and 2021 – Ghana Police Service

Three bodies in Thursday’s gory accident at the outskirts of Sawla have been identified by their families.

This leaves 5 more waiting to be claimed at the Wa Hospital Mortuary.

This follows an incident where a Wa-Kumasi bound Sprinter Benz bus with registration number AS 3022-15 somersaulted and crashed into a nearby bush on the Sawla-Tuna-Kaiba District of the Savannah Region.

According to JoyNews sources at the District Police Command, the 23-seater Sprinter Benz Bus was from Wa in the Upper West Region heading towards Kumasi in the Ashanti Region, but upon reaching the outskirts of the district, another vehicle, a Sanyoung Mimi bus overtook the Sprinter.

A chop box on the Sanyoung Mimi bus reportedly fell off and into the Sprinter’s lane.

The Sprinter then ran over the chop box, bursting one of its front tyres. This forced the vehicle off the road into the bush resulting in some deaths and casualties.

JoyNews Correspondent Isaac Nongya reports that families of three of the casualties have retrieved the bodies at the morgue in anticipation following news of the development.

One of them, has also been identified as a female footballer who is said to be the bread winner of her Family.

Meanwhile, 22 others are also in critical condition and are receiving treatment.

After 2 Month, EC Finally Speaks On Supreme Court Verdict On 2020 Election Petition

Mount The Witness Box And Clear Doubts Of Many Ghanaians – Suhuyini Boldly Tells Jean Mensah

The Electoral Commission (EC) has finally spoken up on the verdict of the Supreme Court concerning the 2020 election petition.

The seven-member Supreme Court panel ruled unanimously that while the petitioner (John Dramani Mahama) had legitimate concerns about the results he could not adduce evidence to validate the claims he was making against the EC.

Speaking on Asaase FM, Bossman Asare, deputy chairman of the EC said the court vindicated the work of the commission with their ruling.

“We were relieved right after the election because we know we did the right thing. The [Supreme] Court gave us an international vindication, so for us life is just normal; we have a lot of things, review of the election et cetera that we must engage in,” he said.

“As a Commission, we are doing what we have to do. There are a lot of administrative measures that must be put in place so that in future we’ll continue to be ahead of the game. I think for us we didn’t see the court case as a challenge… we know it’s part of the work and life must go on,” he said.

Are You Aware Of The Ritual Killings In Ghana: You Have Made Ghana Hard – NDC Blast Akufo Addo In A Press Statement

Are You Aware Of The Ritual Killings In Ghana: You Have Made Ghana Hard – NDC Blast Akufo Addo In A Press Statement

In a statement, the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) expressed condolences to the family of the ten-year-old boy who was killed by two teenagers at Kasoa for “money ritual purposes.”

The statement urged President Akufo-Addo to expedite investigations into unsolved crimes committed in the country since he assumed power.

Read the full statement below:

PRESS STATEMENT BY THE NATIONAL DEMOCRATIC CONGRESS ON THE MURDER OF YOUNG ISHMAEL MENSAH ABDALLAH AT KASOA.

It is with extreme shock and disbelief that the National Democratic Congress received news of the gruesome murder of a ten-year-old boy called Ishmael Mensah Abdallah at Kasoa in the Central Region by his own teenaged acquaintances for ritual purposes.

The Leadership, as well as the entire rank and file of the NDC, join the family and friends and, indeed, the entire nation, in mourning the loss of this young and promising boy much beloved by his family and community.

It is the expectation of the National Democratic Congress that the appropriate authorities will ensure that the bereaved family are comforted by the swiftness of the application of the law to punish the perpetrators and all who may be behind this dastardly murder.

The NDC has taken due notice of the fact that there appears to be a fashionable craze toward the acquisition of quick wealth by many of our countrymen and women and the youth in particular, without the attendant hard, morally sound and lawful means of obtaining the same.

We deem this development as a dangerous trend that has to be condemned and discouraged by all and sundry.

It is a development that the NDC is unquestionably opposed to, or else we risk bequeathing to the youth, a practice and a lifestyle that cannot build this nation.

We further wish to draw the attention of the Akufo-Addo government to the plethora of crimes whose resolution has dragged on interminably, thus, encouraging the perpetuation of the culture of impunity.

We encourage the youth to look out for honest, hardworking, and accomplished persons as their role models.

The wealth that has been improperly obtained, should never be an attraction for the upcoming youth of this great nation.

In this regard, we call on the Akufo-Addo government to speed up investigations and crank the wheels of justice so that the country can rid itself of the odious reminder of this unfortunate event.

May the soul of young Ishmael Mensah Abdallah rest in peace.

ISSUED ON FRIDAY 9TH APRIL, 2021
