Truck driver behind train accident is an NDC member – NPP’s Nana B alleges

National Organiser of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), Henry Nana Boakye has claimed that the driver of a truck that caused an accident involving a newly acquired train during a test run is a member of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC).

Speaking on the Monday, April 22, 2024, edition of Okay FM’s Ade Akye Abia morning show, Nana B insisted that the accident was a clear case of sabotage orchestrated by the opposition to give the government a bad name.

“So Kwame, won’t you talk about the new train which was being tested that had an accident because an NDC person parked a car on the tracks?” he questioned the host.

The host in response, probed whether Nana B had any evidence to prove his claim to which he insisted that the driver who has since been convicted for his action is an NDC member.

“I am telling you that he is NDC, we also have people there, he is a true NDC member with a party card in that constituency… If you look at the way the car was parked it was very deliberate. Do you think it is okay for the NDC to do that? Such evil mindset, that a new train has arrived and for the government to receive praise you would cause its destruction.

“The NDC is typically full of evil mindset. You listen to how happy they sound on social media. Even former President John Dramani Mahama who is supposed to condemn such conduct was saying he would be asking questions if he were to be the president. He is not concerned about the person who caused the incident,” he submitted.

A court last week sentenced Abel Dzidotor, the man responsible for the accident involving the newly imported train on the Tema-Mpakadan railway line, to a six-month jail term with hard labour.

Dzidotor admitted guilt to three out of the four charges levelled against him, which included inconsiderate driving, unauthorized stopping, and causing unlawful damage.

The fourth charge, failing to produce a driver’s license, was contested by Dzidotor, who claimed his license was inside the damaged vehicle.

He has been instructed to present the license to the court by May 9, 2024, to avoid potential consequences.

The Ghana Police Service arrested Dzidotor for causing the accident which occurred on April 18, during a test run of a newly imported train from Poland.

Preliminary investigations by the police said that Dzidotor left the Hyundai truck with registration number GS 9018 – 20 unattended on the railway line, leading to a collision with the train.

The accident reportedly happened when Abel Dzidotor went to deliver cement blocks, but the truck got stuck on the rail after he was returning.
