Akufo-Addo urges police to implement Ebony committee report on road accidents

President Akufo-Addo has called on the Ghana Police Service to speed up the implementation of the report which looked into the gory accident that claimed the life of late songstress, Ebony Reigns.

The dancehall artiste, born Priscilla Opoku Kwarteng, passed in February 2018 after she was involved in a fatal car crash.

The talented singer died together with her best friend and military guard after their car rammed into another on the Sunyani-Kumasi highway.

An inter-ministerial committee was subsequently set up and tasked to investigate the cause of said accident.

The committee was made up of the Minister for the Interior; the Minister of Roads and Highways; and the Minister of Transport.

Speaking at the end-of-year WASSA of the Ghana Police Service, President Akufo-Addo charged the Police to fast-track the implementation of the committee’s report.

According to him, the report is ready and has input from the Police Council, adding that he expects immediate action to curb road accidents.

As the police is the institution charged with the regulation of traffic on our roads, it is my hope that the recommendations will be speedily acted upon and outdoored as soon as possible,” the President said.
