H.E. John Dramani Mahama, Ghana’s former President, expresses his heartfelt condolences to the families of those who perished in the Bogoso Explosion.
After a Tarkwa-bound truck carrying explosives for a mining business collided with a motorbike in Apiate on Thursday afternoon, January 20, 2022, Ghana was slammed with tragic news, a very unexpected one, as many persons were reported dead and many more ill.
John Mahama used his official social media channels to express his sorrow over the disaster, which has rendered the town uninhabitable at the present.
Mahama also prayed for and asked for the quick recovery of those who have been hurt and are undergoing medical treatment (health care).
In three paragraphs, he wrote:
“A truly sad day for Ghana!
My deepest condolences to the families of the victims of the unfortunate disaster at Appiatse, in the Bogoso District of the Western Region this afternoon.
“Let’s pray for the speedy recovery of the injured, as we also urge the security and emergency services to continue to work assiduously to alleviate the damage and suffering in the affected communities.
“To the chiefs and people in the affected areas, the National Democratic Congress (NDC) and the country stand with you, in this time of grief.”
