Former President John Dramani Mahama has said the current levels of hardship is dire but suicide is not the answer to the situation.
This was in reaction to the suicide report involving a trotro mate who got electrocuted and died instantly after climbing a 161000 voltage pylon.
Kofi Kakra climbed the GRIDCO main line at Galilea, a suburb of Kosoa in the Awutu Senya East District in the Central Region, and killed himself when he stepped on the high tensile wires despite persuasion from bystanders and the police.
Mr. Mahama, who was out of the country at the time of the incident later wrote in a Facebook post on Wednesday: “Even in the darkest night, there will always come the dawn. The sun will rise again. Let’s be each others keeper. Let’s keep hope alive!”
