The best performing regional minister in Ghana Hon Dr Biochemist Kwabena Okyere Darko Mensah  received Mr. Bice Obour Osei Kuffour, the Acting Managing Director of Ghana Post Limited at my office, the Western Regional Coordinating Council (WRCC), Sekondi on the 21st January 2022. His visit was for Ghana Post to deepen its collaborative relationship with the WRCC which is essential for their operations in the Western Region.

They discussed how best the services (postal, courier and financial services) of Ghana Post Limited could be promoted, in the quest to achieve its objectives. He submitted during our discussions that, Western Region is going through focused and deliberate infrastructural transformation which will easily help Ghana Post to gladly extend its services to our remote areas inline with their objective of “to expand postal network to viable areas”.

Hon kobby submitted also that, Western Region has many of its indigenes in the diaspora therefore, the WRCC will as a matter of priority work closely with Ghana Post to ensure the resilience of their financial services especially the remittance service.

Furthermore,he encouraged them to grow to be like Japan Post with their vast asset base because they cannot continue to play second fiddle to any courier service.


He made the donation when he joined the Omanhene of Wassa Amanfi, Tetrete Akuamoah Sakyi, the MCE of Prestea Huni Valley, Hon. Isaac Dasmani, and NPP Constituency Executives for Prestea Huni Valley to engage community leaders of Apiate on how to develop the community again after the devastating accident last Thursday.

Justin Kodua Frimpong prayed for God to continue to give the people of Apiate the strength to go through these difficult times.

Thirteen people have so far died and many more injured after a mining vehicle loaded with explosives moving from Tarkwa and headed towards Chirano mines collided with a motorcycle resulting in a massive explosion.

The impact of the blast razed down many buildings in the area and weakened several others leaving hundreds of residents homeless.

Meanwhile, government has assured victims and residents that it would ensure that new buildings are constructed for them.

Vice President Dr. Bawumia made this known when he led a government delegation to the area on Friday, 21st January 2022 in order to assess the situation.

We at Ghana Environmental Advocacy Group, like many Ghanaians, have watched in horror the events of the last twenty-four hours that have resulted in the loss of many lives in Apiatsi, a village near Bogoso in the Western region of Ghana.

While accidents are not always preventable, the knowledge that this accident and the resulting explosion of the highly dangerous explosives that caused the countless injuries, deaths and devastation was entirely preventable leaves us dumbfounded.

It is common knowledge that our resource-rich communities continue to bear the brunt of unbridled exploitation, crippling neglect and underdevelopment. That they would also be at risk of such blatant disregard to our laws, specifically with respect to the transportation of dangerous goods is irresponsible at best. This gory accident presents so many questions that need urgent answers:

What is the requirement under our existing laws regarding the transportation of dangerous goods?

Were these laws enforced?

What safety protocols were deployed once the accident occurred?

What happens to the people of Apiatsi?

What immediate preventive measures are being put in place given that trucks filled with gas and other explosive cargo continue to ply our roads, many of which are in a deplorable state, especially in the Western Region, while dodging craters, aboboya and motor riders with no escort?

We call for a Parliamentary Committee to undertake a thorough review of the incident and the steps that the Government intends to take to ensure compliance with existing laws regarding the transportation of explosive devices and flammable materials in the country.

While we commiserate with our departed brothers and sisters from Apiatsi (Bogoso) and wish the injured speedy recovery, we also call on the Government of Ghana, the Ghana Police Service, all ancillary services and agencies in Ghana to get to the bottom of this disaster, bring fair and just punishment to all those involved in this mayhem and get us the needed answers.
