Former President John Dramani Mahama has commiserated with the families of some 35 persons who died in an accident at Dompoase, a town on the Accra-Elmina Highway in the Central Region.
According to an eyewitness, the accident happened around 4:50 am on Tuesday when a Takoradi-bound bus with registration number GR 5704-18 tried to overtake but failed and collided with a Cape Coast-bound vehicle with registration number GN 3780-10.
Addressing party supporters at the launch of a fundraising programme to boost the party’s war chest for the 2020 campaign, Mr Mahama said: “On behalf of the National Democratic Congress, I wish to express our sincerest condolences to the grieving families and pray that the injured fully recover”.
He expressed his condolences and noted that: “We stand with you in this moment of difficulty and grief, and may God grant those who have passed, peaceful repose”.
Meanwhile, the former President has announced some priority roads which will be constructed if the NDC wins the polls.
“There are some major roads that need widening, yes, and the NDC has already announced its plans to do that. These include the Accra-Aflao, Accra-Kumasi, and Accra-Cape Coast roads, which will all be dualised. Priority will also be given to the early completion of the Eastern corridor road,” he promised.
