President John Mahama has called on Ghanaians to put an end to the blame game over the cause of the fire and flood disaster that befell the nation last Wednesday.

Speaking at the memorial service at the forecourt of the State House for the victims to mark one week of the disaster, President Mahama said the finger pointing in the wake of the national tragedy should stop. According to him, it was time to focus on what must be done to avert a recurrence of the disaster.

               
“When we list the various mistakes and failings that contributed to this catastrophe, I hope it is not for the purpose of pointing fingers but rather of making certain that something of this nature never again happens to our dear country.

“The conversation should not be centered on what past governments did or did not do but rather what this government must and will do. We should not waste the valuable resources of time predicting when another flood or disaster would claim lives.

“We should rather invest that time in taking the appropriate measures to prevent the possibility of such an occurrence,” President Mahama said.

The memorial service climaxed the three-day national mourning for the victims of the disaster.
