A truly sad one 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 towards preventing further spread, alleviating 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 stands with you, in this time of grief.
