The President of Togo, Faure Gnassingbe says the June 3 fire explosion incident at the GOIL fuel station is one of the most serious trials for Ghana.

Mr. Gnassingbe who is in Ghana to commiserate with the citizenry however was optimistic that the nation will survive.  

“As it is done in African tradition, President Ouatara and myself had to consult one another and we quickly understood that there was the need for us to come and express our compassion and share with you the mourning and also clean your tears… This is one of the most serious trials that Ghana has had to undergo in its history but we believe that through these trials, Ghanaians will come out successfully” he said.

Mr. Gnassingbe together with Ghana’s President Mahama visited the accident site at Circle and the 37 Military Hospital where some people who sustained injuries are receiving treatment.
