On behalf of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, I led a government delegation to Apiate near Bogoso in the Western region to commiserate with the Chiefs, people and families adversely affected by the explosion yesterday.
I handed over some relief items and also assured them that Government will take up, fully, the cost of medical care for the persons affected by this disaster and will do all in its power to bring a measure of relief for any loss including the provision of housing for the displaced in collaboration with the mining companies.
I thanked the emergency response teams, the Ghana Ambulance Service, Police, Fire Service, NADMO, Ghana Armed Forces, Health personnel, security and people within the town and adjoining communities who came to the aid of the injured.
Again, we wish the injured a speedy recovery and eternal rest for the departed. May their souls Rest In Peace.
