President of Togo Faure Gnassingbe has arrived in Accra Friday morning to sympathize with Ghanaians on the fire and flood disasters that brought the capital city to its knees Wednesday night.

Gnassingbe and President John Mahama will tour the hardest hit areas including, the GOIL filing station at the Kwame Nkrumah circle in Accra.

Flooding, resulting from torrential rains brought Accra to its knees last Wednesday night, with unimaginable loss of lives and destruction of properties.

President Mahama has declared three days of national mourning for the victims beginning Monday.

Meanwhile, the Ghana national flag will hoist at half-mast during the mourning period.

The government has also announced a GHC 50 million relief package for the affected individuals.

The death toll from the deadly Accra floods and a devastating fire Wednesday has hit 200.

The Ghana National Fire Service (GNFS) said its preliminary investigations into the disastrous explosion at the GOIL fuel station indicates that valves that were not properly tightened caused the fuel to gush out.
