The incident has left the entire nation in mourning, with many expressing their condolences and prayers for the families of the deceased children. The government has also sent its sympathies and promised to investigate the cause of the accident.

For the most part, the cause of the boat capsizing remains unclear. However, reports suggest that the boat was overloaded, and the children were not wearing life jackets, which could have contributed to the tragic outcome.

This is not the first time that a boat has capsized in Ghana, claiming the lives of innocent citizens. Authorities must take action to prevent similar incidents from happening in the future. Safety regulations and guidelines must be put in place, and boat operators must ensure that all passengers, especially children, wear life jackets before boarding.

In a nutshell, the loss of these young lives is a tragedy that could have been avoided. The government and relevant authorities must take responsibility and implement measures to prevent such incidents from occurring in the future. We pray for the families of the deceased and hope that the search for the missing child will be successful.
