President of Liberia, George Weah, has extended his condolences and that of his country to Ghana over the death of over 60 persons in two separate road crashes that occurred last Friday.
The president of our neighboring country in a Facebook post said Liberia stands with Ghana “in prayers” over the unfortunate incident.
“To the Government and people of Ghana, we like to express our deepest condolences and profound sympathies to you for the tragedy that took the lives of Over 90 people yesterday in two separate accidents on the Kintampo Atebubu and Cape Coast roads. The Government and people of Liberia are with you in prayers. May God heal your wounds and help you to overcome this calamity. We have no doubt that you will come out of this with renewed hope and zest as you work towards building a better Ghana for all,” he said in the post.
Meanwhile, 35 of the victims who were burnt beyond recognition have been given a mass burial.
The decision for the mass burial was taken after a meeting involving the Kintampo South District Chief Executive, Alexander Gyan and his counterpart from Garu-Tempane, Emmanuel Asore Avoka.
The bodies of 20 others who also perished in the accident will be given to their families after the necessary identification has been done.
