A bus full of supporters of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has been involved in a fatal accident in the Ashanti Region on the evening of Saturday, November 21, 2020.
Six people have died on the spot while about 50 others have sustained various degrees of injuries.
The accident reportedly happened at Frante, in the Ejura Sekyedumase Municipality of the Ashanti Region.
The accident was said to have happened when a motorcycle rider crossed the bus making the driver lose control of the bus.
Reports have it that the supporters were travelling to Ejura to meet the party's flagbearer, John Dramani Mahama, who is currently in the Ashanti Region for campaign.
This is contained in a report sighted by YEN.com.gh on Myjoyonline.com.
The deceased have been conveyed to the Ejura Government Hospital Morgue while those who were injured are receiving treatment at the same hospital.
Meanwhile, the former president, John Mahama, has cut short his campaign and visited the Ejura Government Hospital to see to the situation.
Meanwhile, in the other news, the NDC has accused President Akufo-Addo and the NPP of trying to hijack the funeral of the late president Jerry John Rawlings.
He has described this as hypocrisy on the part of the president as he claimed the NPP under former president Kufour frustrated Rawlings when he exited power.
Telling that story, according to a report sighted by YEN.com.gh on kasapafmonline.com, said Akufo-Addo, who was an Attorney-General in Kufour’s government, cancelled all courtesies that were meant for Rawlings after he left power in 2001.
He said Akufo-Addo went through hell in the hands of Kufour and the likes of Akufo-Addo.
He also mentioned how Akufo-Addo as Attorney General also outlawed some holidays, including June 4th and December 31, instituted by the late former president.
“Everything that Mr. Rawlings stood for, Nana Akufo-Addo was against it. If as a government you don’t honour any of the man’s achievement, on what basis do you now after he’s dead want to honour him as a great statesman?” Asiedu Nketia quizzed.
