The opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) member of Parliament for Kumbunku constituency in the Northern region, Hon. Ras Mubarak is not happy with government’s response in relation to the Techiman – Tamale road accidents that killed about 50 passengers from Garu heading towards Brong Ahafo region on Friday dawn.
According to the controversial law maker, the government’s response was nothing but shambolic.
He said this on his Facebook wall post,
“To say that I am utterly disappointed by the government’s response to yesterday’s tragic accidents is an understatement. The government’s response is nothing but shambolic. More than 70 of our compatriots have died in very tragic road accidents in just one day.
No package of support for the victims, no declaration of a day for mourning, and unlike other disasters in the past, no visit to either the hospital or the mass burial today by any minister of state. In times of such tragic disasters, we expect leadership”.
What the President has demonstrated is not leadership, just vacuum. Once again my deepest condolences to the friends and families of the victims, and to the MP for Garu, Albert Alalzuuga, who has demonstrated commitment and leadership. Many of the victims were his constituents. He’s still in the area of the accident visiting the victims and picking up bills while the President and his government sleep on the job.
