“We still need more assistance. Disaster has no timeline so the assistance is welcome at any point in time.”

Accra on Thursday was hit by yet another major fire at a gas station near the Ghana International Trade Fair Centre which has claimed nine lives so far and injured many.

 

The National Petroleum Authority says the explosion was caused by 'irresponsible human error'.

Chief Executive Officer of the NPA, Mr. Moses Asaga, explained that two bolts which should have tightened the lid on the gas tanker were missing.
