His aim was achieved but the accident has caused concern among some Ghanaians.

Speaking to the media for the first time since the accident, Mr. Tufeiru says he was driving on top speed due to the urgency of the business he had to attend to in Parliament.

“I was driving on the highest speed; you can describe it as top speed. I wanted to get to Parliament because that was what was worrying me the most. I didn’t even know there was blood all over my body,” he said on Accra-based Citi FM Monday, April 3.

“I want to say a very big think you to the parliamentary health staff who took me to the washroom to inject, stitch me up and clean me up,” he expressed.
