In a related development, the Ghana Meteorological Agency has cautioned drivers against unnecessary speeding as visibility is likely to be poor in most parts of the country due to the onset of the Harmattan.
Most parts in the south of the country will experience misty and fog patches while “dry and slightly hazy conditions will be observed as the day progresses,” the agency predicted for Saturday.
