The accident involving a Metro Mass bus which claimed 62 lives has set many on furious road. In a chat with amoafowaa after the Joy FM NewsNight, Nana wrote:
“In examining emergency preparedness and response in the aftermath of the Kintampo accident.
See, unless we start speaking with bluntness about the state of affairs in our nation, we won’t improve.
For some of us who travel across Africa and not just across West Africa, it is clear how far we are being left behind as a nation by others who a few years ago couldn’t hold a torch to us. Our politicians continue to blow grammar in praising their abilities to throw crumbs our way, when they are in power, and join us to lament the mess they have created for us as a nation, when they are out of power. The only people who remain with the mess at all times are you and I, the ordinary people.
There is zilch emergency response in Sikaman. The best health policy is the grace of God and if you don’t have grace and money, you will die faster than the rate at which sim card prices fell.
Our leaders continue to praise themselves. The slide downwards continues. The people look on, afraid to talk. Content to be in political camps.
Long live the farce.
Nsempiisms. My mouth has fallen.”
Many are the rumours flying about. Many claim that most drivers of Metro Mass buses, which is state owned are mostly drunk, rude and drive recklessly. Others claim they are not even serviced as they should from time to time. Nana calls on all Ghanaians to speak bluntly so issues can be resolved. He further stated that his focus is on the bad emegency response which Kintampo only served as costly example.
