As a measure to prevent a recurrence of the June 3 fire and flood disaster which claimed over 150 lives, the Ministry of Environment, Science, Technology and Innovation says it will close down more fuel stations sighted on waterways.

The sector minister, Mahama Ayariga who spoke on the Citi Breakfast Show said, all fuel stations on waterways will be demolished.

“The closure is ongoing. We have more than 3,400 fuel stations in the country and even this morning my deputies sent me a message about some stations sighted on waterways. I can assure you that both the NPA and the EPA are going round to ensure that these fuel stations are closed down,” he said.

The Minister and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) have already closed down about four filling stations in the Greater Accra region already.
