His comment comes on the back of a gas explosion at Atomic junction on Saturday, that claimed seven lives and left several others injured.

Most Very Reverend Titus Awotwe Pratt addressing the induction service of the newly lay president of the church at Adum Wesley Methodist church in Kumasi said the gas explosions could have been prevented if the two agencies were effective.

He said "And yet we have well-seasoned men and women well trained, high qualifications and they sit there and these things happen, very sad indeed and when you talk about it they tell you think about church things in the Bible; don’t speak about social things. I  pay my tax, i cast my vote during elections, I’m a citizen of this nation by birth not by certificate.

"I have every right to speak when things are going bad and our people always ask us what is the church saying, these are the things that baffle my mind so those occupying high office in this country are they men and women of high repute?"

The gas station explosion has killed at least 7 persons and injured 132 people.

132 injured persons, 64 of them have been treated and discharged.

An investigation has been commenced into the cause of the explosion.
