Intensify Public Education – GNFS, NRSA, Transport Unions Told.

The Ghana National Fire Service, the National Road Safety Authority and the various transport unions in the country such the Ghana Private Roads Transport Unions (GPRTU), the Progressive Road Transport Owners Association (PROTOA) and the Co-operative Transport Union have been urged to intensify public education on the effects and repurcusons of industrial, domestic and bush fires, as well as road accidents, not only on the economy, but on society as a whole.

The founder and General Overseer of the Overcomers Royal Sanctuary and a lecturer in Theology at the Regent University, Apostle Joshua Kobina Darko Spokwell who made the admonishing during a sermon in Agona Swedru said Ghana cannot continue to waste its precious human resources to fires and road accidents because of the negligence of others.

According to him, the country will continue to witness such incidents until the relevant authorities such as the Ghana National Fire Service, the National Road Safety Authority and the various transport unions up their game by embarking on rigorous public education, not limited to indoor conferences, but targeted at institutions such as schools, religious organizations and social gatherings where the attention of the masses could be attracted for the effective dissemination of the information.

During the last quarter of the year 2021, over thirty road accidents and ten industrial and domestic fires were recorded throughout the, a situation majority of concerned Ghanaians described as worrying and disturbing.

However Apostle Spokwell has predicted more of such incidents this year if the relevant authorities concerned fails to embark on nationwide public education on domestic and bush fires as well as road accidents.

He also called on members of the public to desist from any acts that have the tendency of causing these incidents.
