Speaker of Parliament, Alban Sumana Kingsford Bagbin has comforted Appiatse explosion victims as he described their pain and grief as unimaginable.
The Speaker in a press release dated January 21, 2022, said he “received with shock and sadness news of an accident that resulted in the tragic loss of lives, varying degrees of injury, and the loss of property in the town of Appiatse, near Bogoso in the Western Region”.
He offered his condolences and prayers to the victims and their families…., “their pain and grief are unimaginable. But “the Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit.” (Psalm 34:18)”
The Speaker, however, entreated all Ghanaians to remember them in their prayers but he encouraged those in adjourning communities to open their doors to them.
“And to the rest of Ghanaians to offer whatever support they can by way of food, water, building materials, clothing, and anything essential to ease the grief of our fellow countrymen and women. Let us, in the proverbial Ghanaian spirit of love and hospitality, help them to rebuild their lives”.
