A National Memorial Service for victims of the June 3 flood and fire disaster will  be  held  at  the  forecourt  of  the  State  House  on  Wednesday  June  10, 2015 at 8.30am.

A statement from the Ministry of Communications said the memorial service will be inter-faith, inter-denominational, and will involve all Ghanaians. 

The statement also confirmed the change of venue from the precincts of the GOIL Service Station where the fire disaster occurred to the forecourt of the State House.

On Wednesday, June 3, 2015, a twin disaster hit parts of Accra claiming over 150 lives and destroying properties worth millions of Ghana cedis.
