According to President John Dramani Mahama, he expects that some personalities be held responsible and duly punished for the fire that razed down the National Central Medical Store in Tema. These remarks were made by the Chief Commander when he visited the site of the disaster to assess the situation for himself.

The President also tasked the Ghana National Fire Service and concerned bodies to quickly investigate the incident to ascertain the cause of the fire some few days ago. According to the President, even if the fire had occurred by accident, the country needs to assess and be well prepared against future events.

“If it was fire that occurred by accident then we also have to assess the state of fire preparedness for sensitive installations like this…And someone has to take some sort of responsibility. We can’t continue to have this kind of situation happen where the nation loses so much money and in these times where we have economic challenges and you lose medical supplies and equipment worth more than 300 million cedis is totally unacceptable,” he remarked.

He also stated that this disaster should alert all state institutions to start checking their precautions against fire and have proper liaison with the Ghana National Fire Service.

In other related developments, the United Cares’ Front (UCF) of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) says it strongly suspects political saboteurs to be behind the fire outbreak at the Central Medical stores.
