Second Deputy Speaker of Parliament and a flagbearer aspirant of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Hon. Alban Sumana Kingsford Bagbin, commiserated with the families of the two young men who died in the fatal accident involving a driver of his.
The Nadowli Kaleo MP yesterday touched base in Winneba and beat a path to the homes of the late Emmanuel Awadzi (27) and Kwame Acquah (25) who had died instantly when they run into a car driven by Charles Owusu, a driver of Mr. Bagbin’s campaign car.
Mr. Bagbin rushed down to Winneba from Wa, where he had been mourning a late cousin of his when the incident happened on the Winneba road. He was therefore constrained to abandon his own issue in order to make it down to express his condolence.
Apparently, the driver had been sent to deliver campaign posters to the Central Region when the incident happened. The deceased young men were riding a motorbike in town without helmets.
A crash with the Bagbin campaign car at Winneba had resulted in their instant deaths.
Mr. Bagbin, who was then in Wa, the Upper West regional capital, mourning his cousin, left everything that he was doing and rushed down to Winneba to commiserate with the families.
Upon reaching Winneba on Monday, the senior Legislator, first got in touch with the Winneba District Police for briefing on what exactly had happened. It was from there that he went to the houses of the bereaved families to commiserate with them.
“Only Almighty God knows why certain things are beyond human understanding, I would like to thank the good people of Winneba for their wonderful reception, may God watch over them and bless them”.
The Second Deputy Speaker of Parliament had been joined on the commiseration by Sylvester Mensah, former Chief Executive of then National Health Insurance Authority (NHIA).
Mr. Bagbin was accompanied by some members of his campaign team including Mrs Jemilatu Ibrahim, a businesswoman and a leading member of the NDC in Sisala East and Mr. Stephen Ashitey Adjei alias Moshake, Executive Member of Tema East NDC.
