President John Dramani Mahama and his family on Thursday, December 25, 2014 spent the Christmas day in Bole, the Northern region, his hometown at a children’s Christmas party.
The party organized by the first family saw many children going home with Christmas hats and other items.
The first lady, Mrs Lordina Mahama joined the children in the celebration in a dancing and singing session.
President Mahama, in his Christmas message to Ghanaians, urged the citizenry to be disciplined on the road during the festive season.
“Fellow Ghanaians, we record a high number of road traffic accidents during festive seasons. Vehicular accidents cause injuries to drivers, passengers and other road users.
“Sometimes not only are people maimed but also precious lives are lost. Not to talk of the damage to goods and vehicles among others, causing pain and distress to loved ones, family and friends.
“The causes of these road traffic accidents include speeding, overloading, wrongful overtaking, driving and texting, drunk-driving and disregard for road traffic regulations.
“Your loved ones, family, friends and I need you alive. Be disciplined on the road by respecting other road users. Put a smile on the faces of your loved ones and family by getting to your destination safely,” the President said.
