The Ghana Private Road Transport Union (GPRTU) has extended its condolences to the bereaved families of the unfortunate road accident which claimed over 60 lives at Kintampo in the Brong Ahafo Region.
It described the accident as regrettable and disturbing while condemning the spate of road carnage in the country.
Mr Issah Khaleepha, General Secretary of the Union, in a statement copied to the Ghana News Agency, urged its members to exercise the greatest caution to avert such occurrences in the future.
“It’s unfortunate that the carnage had occurred at the time drivers are being congratulated for the massive reduction of road accidents in 2015,” the statement said.
“We wish to take this opportunity to encourage our members, social partners and other stakeholders that through collaborative efforts they should endeavour to give off their best towards the realisation of set targets,” it said.
The statement urged them to monitor the professional conduct of drivers to minimise road accidents.
It also advised the GPRTU members to continue to work together in harmony to curb such unfortunate incidents in the transport industry to ensure progress.
