Speaker of Parliament, Alban Bagbin, has expressed profound condolences to the victims of the Apeatse explosion and their families.

In a statement released on Friday, January 21, 2022, he stated, “I received with shock and sadness, the news of an accident that resulted in the tragic loss of lives, varying degrees of injury and loss of property on the Bawdie-Bogoso road in the town of Apeatse in the Western Region.

“I extend my condolences and prayers to the victims and their families, whose pain and grief at this moment will be unimaginable. The Psalmist tells us that ‘the Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit.’ That is the assurance I have for all those in grieve as a result of the accident,” he said.

He also entreated the general public to help restore the lost livelihoods by supporting the victims with relief items such as food, water, building materials, and other essentials.

“I entreat all Ghanaians to remember them in prayers and encourage those in adjourning communities to offer whatever help they can to the victims and the displaced. Let us in the proverbial Ghanaian spirit of love and brotherliness, help them rebuild their lives.

“I will be playing my part by mobilising support for the community affected in this emergency situation and I count on your support as well. Together, we can restore hope to those affected by this unfortunate incident,” he said.
