A LETTER TO THE NDC TO RATHER FORM ROAD CARNAGE RESPONSE TEAM TO CURB THE NUMEROUS DEATHS ON OUR ROADS.
Your populist, self-promotional media gymnastics in relation to your COVID-19 Response Team has failed to yield any form of dividends.
That faddish of a parallel structure with the view to lending intellectually important health related materials to the team rolled onto the field to combat the coronavirus pandemic is wasting its time.
I have a better suggestion. The carnage on our roads is mind-bending. Hundreds of innocent citizens have perished through the carelessness of some drivers on our highways.
As uncomfortable as I am talking about this, I am being compelled to use these examples. The Kintampo-Tamale and Accra-Cape Coast roads have been epicenters of road accidents. Many people have died on these two roads. In fact, hundreds have died through the carelessness of some drivers and other factors.
Would you care forming a Road Carnage Response Team to help cure the dangers on our roads? COVID-19 May be contagious, the damage road accidents have done to human lives cannot be underestimated.
If indeed your care for humanity as much as you would want us to believe, what stops you from forming this anti-road accident team to help combat the blood spilled on our roads?
I am very sure that your so-called expertise advice which you said would find its way to the committee charged with the responsibility of fighting COVID-19 would be a mere dust gathering edifice.
Per what we heard, there is nothing in you to impart to the committee members for onward implementation. You yourselves need to be schooled on COVID-19 because what you put out there as proposals add naught to the battle we are wagging against this strange enemy.
Let me reiterate this, form an anti-road accidents committee to advise on healthy driving habits, for that is where many more are perishing.
