Western Regional Manager of the National Insurance Commission, Justice Preprah Agyei according to B&FT online noted that, most vehicles driven on the roads are not properly insured.
He said “Others drive with fake motor insurance stickers. We cannot count the number of people who have suffered from being victims of a motor crash with fake motor insurance or uninsured vehicles”.
He Also added, In Ghana, every family may have experienced this one way or the other. “People have lost parents, children, siblings and other relatives through a motor crash. Where will these people receive compensation from?” he asked.
