Ghana News Update
Issue #42 • View online
Dear GhanaWeb reader,
Your most dependable news portal, GhanaWeb, has launched a road safety campaign to help curb the growing menace of accidents in Ghana. This campaign forms part of the numerous projects GhanaWeb has rolled out to celebrate its 22nd-anniversary.
The year-long campaign dubbed #GhanaWebRoadSafety began on March 1, 2021, and it will focus on three key areas: indiscipline on roads; bad roads and potholes that contribute to road accidents; and the absence of streetlights.
The campaign is being executed in partnership with major stakeholders including the Ghana Road Safety Commission, the Motor Transport and Traffic Directorate of the Ghana Police Service, Ghana Highway Authority, the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital, and the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Authority. The campaign is also spearheaded by musician and politician Bice Osei Kufour (Obour) as the Ambassador.
