Somoco Ghana Ltd. is partnering GhanaWeb to hold its maiden road safety walk.

The event which comes off on the 27th of November, 2021 seeks to create awareness about safety on Ghana’s roads.

This comes in the wake of recent alarming statistics emerging from the Motor Traffic and Transport Department (MTTD).

The MTTD disclosed in October that over 2,000 persons have lost their lives from January to September, whilst over 11,000 have suffered various degrees of injury from road crashes.

GhanaWeb, in view of this, kicked off its Road Safety campaign at the start of the year, to help curb the worrying spate of accidents in the country.

As part of its activities, it is holding a Road Safety Walk to wrap up the campaign. To support this initiative, Somoco Ghana Ltd, a partner to the World’s number one and largest motorcycle manufacturer in West Africa has joined the campaign as title sponsor.

As a company that majors in manufacturing quality, durable and fuel-efficient bikes, and tricycles, Somoco hopes to educate prospective clients and the entire Ghanaian populace about the need for safety on the roads, by supporting the road safety walk.

Other partners include Verna Mineral Water and Delish Restaurant.

Scheduled to begin at the Presbyterian Boys Senior High School (PRESEC), participants will walk through the principal streets of the N4, through the Atomic roundabout where the team will visit some major taxi and bus stations and then proceed towards East Legon where the walk will end.

Lead Ambassador of the walk, Bice Osei Kufour (Obour) will be spearheading the event together with the staff of GhanaWeb, key stakeholders of the campaign, some celebrities including Black Sheriff, and some members of the general public.
