President János Áder has sent a message of condolences to his Ghanaian counterpart over the explosion that killed or injured close to one hundred people in the town of Apiate. A vehicle carrying mining explosives collided with a motorcycle and blew up in the town on Thursday. President Áder extended condolences to the families of the victims and the people of Ghana and expressed hope that those injured would recover swiftly. The president paid an official visit to the country last week.
Meanwhile, the Prime Minister’s Office on Friday sent condolences to the families of the victims of the explosion. The government is providing humanitarian aid of HUF 5 million (EUR 14,000) under the Hungary Helps program, the office said. The aid will be delivered by the Hungarian Ecumenical Charity and distributed in partnership with its local organisation in support of rescue operations and the medical treatment of survivors.
