Alex Tetteh, President of Citizen Eye Ghana, stated that there was no oxygen in the ambulance of the presidential convoy, one of which was involved in an accident on Sunday, May 19, 2024.

According to Alex Tetteh, who indicated that he was at the scene of the accident, the presidential driver who lost his life in the accident could have survived if there had been oxygen in the ambulance.

He said police and soldiers in the convoy watched helplessly as their colleague died.

He could not understand why there would be no oxygen in the convoy that was supposed to transport the president of the nation.

“An ambulance belonging to the large-member pastor, Adom Kyei, was used to transport the driver of the Kia Rhino and his companion. The police and soldiers were giving him (the driver of the Kia Rhino) water to drink and I said: you are giving him water but you are watching your own person die.

“Do you know what’s funny? The officials of the Jubilee House, the protocol service and national security should hang their heads in shame; the car that was being used as an ambulance in the presidential convoy did not even have an oxygen (tank) “he said in Twi.

And he added: “If there had been oxygen, the man could have survived. “It is a disgrace to Jubilee House, the protocol service and national security.”

A vehicle in the presidential convoy reportedly collided with a Kia Rhino on Sunday.

The Office of the President, in a statement issued later, confirmed reports of the accident, but stated that several vehicles in the presidential convoy were involved in the accident.

“Several vehicles belonging to the President’s convoy were involved in a fatal accident along the Bunso-Akyem Asafo section of the Accra-Kumasi Highway,” the statement read in part.

The presidency revealed that one of the drivers of its vehicle, a Toyota Land Cruiser, died in the accident.

“Tragically, one of the drivers, Mr. Kwesi Atta, lost his life. In addition, several bodyguards and police officers from the President’s security team suffered injuries of varying degrees and received initial treatment at the Suhum Government Hospital.

“The injured persons are currently being evacuated to the University of Ghana Medical Center for further treatment and observation,” the statement revealed.
