Bawumia, who expressed his displeasure at the number of gas explosions record in the last three years, said Ghanaians want solid policies to deal the gas explosions once and for all.

“This is one too many. This is about the eighth explosion in three years," he said after touring the scene of the gas explosion Sunday morning, adding: "We are going to move to deal with it. It’s not about committees and committees and nothing gets done. We owe it to the country, and government is going to take this very seriously. Discussions were being held last night about the way forward.”

“Some new policies are going to come in and those who are going to try to resist those policies, I don’t think they will be listened to because it is important for us to put the safety of our people above everything else,” he added.

“It is in the interest of our country that we actually implement some new policy directions.”

According to him, government has “pretty much an idea what to do” in other to check gas explosions.

He rounded up his speech by giving thumps up to the Ghana National Fire Service, the Police, the Military and the Ghana National Ambulance for their role in the accident.
