Parliament on Tuesday, March 26, 2019, began official sitting with a tribute paid to victims of the fatal accident that occurred at Ampomakrom in the Kintampo South Constituency of the Bono East Region.
Before the Member of Parliament of that constituency, Gifty Adjei, paid tribute, the Speaker, Professor Aaron Mike Oquaye, expressed unhappiness with media reports that the legislative arm of government snubbed the victims of the twin road accidents.
It was reported that parliamentarians paid respect to victims of March 15’s terrorist attack in New Zealand and Cyclone Idai in south African countries of Zimbabwe, Mozambique and Malawi.
Prof Oquaye noted that Gifty Adjei, the MP for Kintampo South Constituency, had been emotionally hit by the accident on Friday, March 22, 2019 and even had to step out of proceedings though she was to make a statement for the accident victims.
The former MP for Dome-Kwabenya explained that there was a unanimous agreement by both sides of the House that she makes a statement to pay tribute to the victims.
“And in any case, normally we had started work on Tuesday anyway,” he said to play down whatever was done in the House on Monday, March 25.
