    It’s really disheartening. I went to college not far from there. There are several hostels accommodating Students from different parts of Africa around the area as well.

    my heart and prayers go out to Ghana.

    If laws are not enforced which is typical most of Africa especially these parts, and you have some street vendor roasting corn, kebab etc a walking distance from a gas or petrol station this is what happens.

    The poor stupid street vendor will be blamed meanwhile the one who should be blamed is the minister and law enforcement people who didn’t enforce the law to make sure no fire operating street vendors run their business at least 100 km from the gas station.

    Naija this could happen to y’all so put pressure on your law enforcement people to enforce law and make sure no street vendors who use fire do not operate anyway close by a petrol station. Or gas stations do not well cigarettes or lighters., if you see anyone smoking near a gas station remind them to stop and if they don’t do what you gotta do, you cannot come and die

    As y’all know common sense is not common in our many African countries

    Enforce the law simple

    The safety culture in a lot of African countries are bad. Companies flaunt safety policies and cut corners. Government don’t implement policies, they take bribes and allow things to slid through the crack. The public are ignorant or don’t care. People need to realize that oil and gas business is a very dangerous business and pay particular attention to safety. I hope and pray that no one is hurt in the inferno.
