The Member of Parliament for Builsa South, Dr. Clement Apaak has said the silence of President Akufo-Addo and his Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia on the drowning of nine pupils at Faana in Weija Gbawe municipality is worrying.
The deputy ranking member on Education Committee in Parliament in a tweet stated that President Akufo-Addo would have commented if the incident had occurred elsewhere.
“It’s over 24hrs yet no comment from Akufo-Addo or Bawumia regarding the boat accident resulting in the drowning of 9 pupils. Not a word to console the distraught parents and grieving community.
“If this occurred elsewhere Akufo-Addo would have made a consoling comment by now!” Dr. Apaak tweeted.
Nine children were drowned by a boat on Wednesday May 10, 2023 around Faana in Weija Gbawe Municipality in the Greater Accra region.
However, the rescue team dispatched to the area have been able to retrieve all bodies of the drown pupils.
