1.8689315President John Mahama has expressed deep concern over the death of 53 people following a gory road accident on the Kintampo-Tamale road Wednesday evening.

Hours after the unfortunate accident, the President who tweets on the handle @JDMahama, tweeted, “Received the sad news of an accident involving a M.M.T Bus on the Kintampo-Tamale road. Condolences to those who have lost loved ones”.

Mahama further tweeted, “Emergency services working to attend to injured passengers in the M.M.T. Bus accident on the Kintampo- Tamale road. Very sad news.”

Forty two passengers on a Metro Mass bus believed to be traveling from Ouagadougou in Burkina Faso heading to Accra had a head-on collision with three other cars at Kintampo in the Brong Ahafo Region.

Fifty three people have so far been confirmed dead while 23 others sustained various degrees of injuries.

The accident happened around 20:00 GMT.


In another development, the President also commented on the ferry accident which happened earlier at Makango, Tamale in the Northern Region where a ferry carrying 500 people sunk.

“With the ferry incident, all passengers onboard the Yeji- Makonga ferry were rescued by a naval detachment. Cargo also salvaged,” Mahama’s tweet said.

All 500 persons onboard the ferry were rescued.
