Public Relations Officer of the Ghana National Fire Service, Prince Billy Anaglatey, has blamed the Accra Metropolitan Assembly (AMA) for the continues fire outbreak in the metropolis.
According to him, the failure of the assembly to swiftly act on reports submitted by the service after its audit has given grounds for individuals and organizations to flout basic infrastructural requirements.
Mr. Anaglatey told Gold News most markets in the metropolis are not built to meet fire safety measures, noting that until the AMA effectively comes to the rescue of these markets, fire outbreaks in the markets will continue.
He also stressed the need for the assemblies to put in place proper measures at various market centres for fire prevention.
He further urged the assembly to consider the lives and property of traders by implementing the recommendations made by the Ghana National Fire Service to save the country’s markets.
Meanwhile, the AMA Boss, Alfred Oko Vanderpuije, has declined to make any comments.
