Over 70 persons died in an accident involving a Metro Mass bus and a cargo truck on Wednesday.
He said information he has gathered from the mechanics and some drivers at the company indicate that “maintenance of the buses have gone down in terms of availability of spare parts and the fact that MMT is not having enough money to purchase spare parts.”
“…if care is not taken, people will continue to die,” he warned.
About 70 people perished in an accident involving a Metro Mass bus and a cargo truck on Wednesday.
The accident occurred when the Tamale-bound Metro Mass bus and Accra-bound truck loaded with tomatoes from Burkina Faso collided head-on the Kintampo-Tamale highway.
Some eyewitnesses reported that the engine of the Metro Mass bus failed and because it was speeding, the driver lost control and the collision occurred.
In an interview on Radio Ghana, Mr. Aryeh Pay revealed that the company is struggling to maintain its buses; a situation which has resulted in the grounding of a lot of the company’s buses.
The former MMT manager advised that “Metro Mass must come out quickly to explain what caused the accident so that they can regain the public’s confidence in the running of the buses.”
