"Roads Minister Did Not Blame Drivers And Good Roads As Causes Of Crashes In Ghana" – PRO Clarifies


The Ministry of Roads and Highways has clarified that a reportage shared on Twitter by Accra-based radio station, Joy Fm about its Minister saying road crashes in the country are caused by drivers and good roads is misleading.


According to the Public Relations Officer of the Ministry, Isaac Agyei Kwakye, the Minister rather mentioned that research and evidence show that over 90% of road accidents could be attributed to the human factor.



In a rejoinder sighted by ThinkNews Online, he said "Research and evidence show that over 90% of road accidents could be attributed to the human factor. In our country, the more we improve our roads, the more we make our roads motorable and comfortable to ride on, the more we spread asphalt overlays, the more we get and record accidents because most of our drivers take the opportunity to over speed on improved roads"


He appealed to the general public to disregard the reportage attributed to the Roads and Highways Minister, Kwesi Amoako-Atta.


Below is a copy of the rejoinder:
