The chiefs have blamed corruption, disrespect for and non-enforcement of the country’s laws for the such tragedies resulting in the loss of 250 lives in the past ten years.
The house is also of the view that disrespect for and non-enforcement of the country’s laws continue to endanger the lives of Ghanaians.
It further decried how in the last ten years, over 250 precious lives were lost in gas explosions.
In a statement on the Atomic Junction disaster, the house of chiefs emphasised the need to put in place holistic measures that must be strictly enforced in order to protect innocent lives and property.
While expressing condolence to families of bereaved families and those of injured victims, the chiefs suggested that fuel dealers properly train their personnel in safety standards.
Below is the statement signed by the Public Relations Officer of the house of chiefs, Stephen Owusu.
