It would be recalled that last year President John Mahama’s press corps was involved in an accident, which claimed the life of Ghanaian Times reporter Samuel Nuamah. The president and the about 20 reporters were returning from the Volta Region when the accident occurred.

So far, it remains unclear if the Nuamah accident is what is motivating the journalists to demand insurance cover for the vehicle they will use during the president’s Ashanti tour, but apart from that demand, they also want the Ashanti Regional Coordinating Council (RCC) to seek their welfare during the tour by providing them with water and food.
