The Rt. Hon Speaker of Ghana’s Parliament Alban Kingsford Sumana Bagbin has expressed shock and sadness over the accident that resulted in the tragic loss of lives, varying degrees of injury and the loss of property in the town of Appiate, near Bogoso in the Western Region.
“I offer my condolences and prayers to the victims and their families. Their pain and grief is unimaginable. But the Lord is near to the broken hearted and saves the crushed in spirit.” (Psalm 34:18).
In a statement issued on Friday, January 21, 2022 he entreated Ghanaians to remember them in their prayers. “I also encourage those in adjourning communities to open their doors to them.”
And to the rest of Ghanaians to offer whatever support they can by way of food, water, building materials, clothing, and anything essential to ease the grief of our fellow country men and women.
“Let us, in the proverbial Ghanaian spirit of love and hospitality, help them to rebuild their lives”, he noted.
