Speaker of Parliament Rt. Hon Alban Sumana Kingsford Bagbin has pledged his commitment to champion an advocacy to drastically reduce road accidents which account for high cases of death recorded in the country annually.
The Speaker said this when a management team from JoyNews and Multi-media Group paid a courtesy call on him in Parliament to present him with copies of its documentary titled ‘CRUSHED’, as part of it contribution to address the increasing number of road accidents in the country. The documentary captures chilling details of how many families have lost loved ones to road carnage.
Speaker Bagbin assured the team that he would task the relevant Committees and Parliament as a whole to discuss and analyse the current road traffic challenges and come up with proposals to curb the growing unfortunate trend.
