We don’t need cabinet meeting to solve gas explosions – Namoale
Former Member of Parliament for Dade Kotopon, Nii
Amasah Namoale said the President does not need
cabinet to implement “simple” regulation in the
Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) books.

His comments follows decision by President Nana
Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to meet his cabinet on
Thursday over the deadly gas explosion last week
Saturday but before the President will meet his

“We don’t need more policies or programmes to deal
with these issues, what we need is the President
directing his appointees at the supervising
agencies and ministries to act, and not to be
holding cabinet meetings, for what?” Namoale asked
in bewilderment on Onua Fm morning show on

Seven persons lost their lives, with 132 others
sustaining varied degrees of injury in Saturday’s
explosion which is the 8th within three years in
the country.

Nii Amasah Namoale insisted that the explosions
are becoming one too many, and the President
should be seen being proactive rather than
“talking because the talk is becoming too much; he
is the executive President and have the power to
hire and fire, so Nana Addo please get down and do
the work”.

He posited that if people appointed by the
President fail, he has no other options than to
accept the blame since the buck stops with him,
adding that if the problem is lack of human
resources at the agencies responsible for ensuring
safety in the environment, government should
recruit more people.

“This is a matter of life and death and we should
not wait for another explosion or disaster of a
sort, if there are no men at EPA, GSA (Ghana
Standards Authority) and all other agencies
responsible for ensuring safety, then they must
recruit more people.

The President must act now, he should fire those
ineffective CEOs” Meanwhile, former MP for
Ablekuma North Justice Joe Appiah has condemned
attempt by some people to politicize the
Saturday’s explosion, saying “if the heads of
supervising agencies cannot enforce their own
regulations for our safety, then they should get
out of office. It is time we stop this nonsense,
people are dying” .
