Garu To Hold Service For The Deceased

Emmanuel Asore Avoka

Preparations
have almost been concluded towards the organization of an inter-denominational
service in the Garu District of the Upper East Region for persons from the area
who lost their lives in the recent Kintampo accident which claimed over 50
lives.

In
its bid to support the grieving families to bid a befitting farewell to their
departed relations, the Garu District Assembly is organizing the inter-denominational
service which is expected to be attended by the Vice-President of Ghana, Dr.
Mahamudu Bawumia, on Saturday April 13, 2019.

Some
other members of government, including the Upper East Regional Minister,
Paulina Patience Abayage and members of the Garu District Assembly are also
expected to attend the service.

In
an interview, the District Chief Executive, Emmanuel Asore Avoka, said all is
set and the assembly is committed to providing the platform for the people of
the district to mourn with the bereaved families.

So
far, 47 families from the district have presented the names of their deceased
relations to the assembly and have expressed their willingness to participate
in the inter-denominational church service.

On
Friday, March 22, a bus with passengers from the Garu District collided with
another bus with passengers who were travelling to the Upper East Region.

It has since been reported that many communities and some districts in the Upper East Region were adversely affected by the accident. However, Garu is the most affected district hence the inter-denomination service to console the bereaved families and friends.
