Former President John Dramani Mahama says he shares in the pain of traders and others who were affected by Wednesday night’s fire disaster at the newly constructed Kejetia market in Kumasi.
In a Facebook post, Mr. Mahama noted that the sight of mothers and sisters struggling to scale ropes to reach safety is a sign of the trauma and injury many may have suffered from the unfortunate event.
He, therefore, extended his heartfelt sympathy to all who suffered physical harm or loss of livelihood from the incident and wished all who were rushed to the hospital a speedy recovery.
Mr. Mahama called for a speedy investigation to identify the true cause of the fire and measures put in place to prevent any future occurrence.
He also prayed that all those affected by the fire will be supported by government and their insurance companies, where applicable, to recover their lost livelihoods in what is already a dire economic situation.
