Some residents of Koforidua have expressed concern at the state of school buses that convey pupils to school in the town.

They want the Motor Transport and Traffic Department (MTTD) of the Eastern Regional Police Command to take on all school buses in the Koforidua municipality.

Their concerns come on the heels of some 30 pupils of Pentecost Preparatory School escaping a fatal accident at Oyoko.

“Many don’t do maintenance, the police so not check them. Some don’t even have licence.The police should check them and arrest all who default,” a resident pointed out.

Thirty pupils of the school escaped a fatal accident after their bus fell into a ditch.

Personnel from NADMO helped rescue the pupils.

A handful of the pupils who got injured have been treated at the Central Hospital Koforidua.

No casualties were recorded.

The driver had detected a fault on the vehicle and parked it to work on before the accident occurred.

Several buses in the municipality overload pupils in school buses conveying them to school and back home.

Parents pay for the services rendered by the school in conveying their wards.

The Eastern Regional Police Command has begun investigations into the accident.
