Vice-President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia and Second Lady Samira Bawumia have expressed grief over the accidents that claimed the lives of approximately 70 people on Friday, 22 March 2019.

"My wife @SBawumia and I extend our heartfelt condolences to the families of those who sustained various levels of injuries, and others that lost their lives in the tragic road accidents which have occurred today in Ghana,” Dr Bawumia stated in a tweet on Friday.

The Vice-President believes the country needs to put in place appropriate measures to drastically reduce road accidents.

While 57 lives perished in the Bono East Region, 9 others also lost their lives in the Central Region, with several other people sustaining various degrees of injuries.

Scores of passengers on two huge buses, one, a VVIP bus and the other, an old bus, perished in the ghastly head-on collision that happened on the Techiman-Kintampo road around 2 a.m. on Friday at Ampomakrom within the Pamdu Electoral Area of the Bono East Region.

The Central Region crash involved a Metro Mass Transit bus with registration number AS 2951 – 10, travelling from Accra to Diaso, and a Yutong bus with registration number GN 4368 – 14, travelling in the opposite direction.
