Aspiring General Secretary of the People's National Convention (PNC), Atik Mohammed says until government acts accordingly, the blame game over the recent gas explosion at Circle must continue.

President John Mahama speaking at the memorial service at the forecourt of the State House for the victims of the fire and flood disasters called on Ghanaians to put an end to the blame game over the cause of the tragedy that befell the nation last Wednesday. He stated that it was time to focus on what must be done to avert a recurrence of the disaster.

But policy analyst for the PNC has remarked that the blame game will continue because "somebody must take responsibility, someone must be held accountable".

According to him, the president is responsible for the havoc because he is sleeping on his job. He indicated that because of the president’s failure to put in proper measures to avert the incident, “the deaths of those people are on his hands”.

They wait and when their inaction turns into a huge disaster then you find them in their best attires, taking selfies and groupies with the ‘pretence’ of showing concern and to mourn. Then the president will say ‘never again’... The president and his appointees’ refusal to act is the reason this has happened. They (President and his appointees) are sleeping on the job as though the country is on cruise control, autopilot no one seems to be in control”.

All we get in return is the loss of lives. All we get in return is the people enjoying our taxes and not doing the work. Then when we talk, they say we should stop the blame game; meaning these people would have died for nothing? No justice would be served? If we say we should stop the blame game, if one person is not owning up to this, then what are talking about?

We have a government in this country. Ghanaians have lost their lives and we don’t find it relevant? We don’t find it a priority that somebody will be asked to account for what happened? Then what kind of country are we living in? Then this would have been a Presidential-less or President-less country or a leaderless country," he fumed on Peace FM's morning show, Kokrokoo.
