President Akufo-Addo has expressed condolences to the family of the student of West Africa Secondary School (WASS) who was crashed to death at Adenta in Accra on Thursday.
The first year student was knocked down by a speeding taxi as she attempted crossing the road on her way from school.
In a statement the President said “Our nation has suffered an unnecessary loss. The scenes that played out in its aftermath are regrettable, and should not happen again.
“The Ministry of Roads and Highways is ensuring that work begins on completion of these bridges in the course of the coming week, and has put together a comprehensive plan to address systematically all these infrastructural problems, which are legacies of a past decade of neglect.”
President Akufo Addo also urged drivers and pedestrians to obey and respect the laws on our roads, as both government and the citizenry, have a collective responsibility to safeguard and preserve life.
“My condolences, once again, to the family” The President added.
