Stool Lands sekondi on fire

Dr. Isaac Sagoe, Chairman of the Western Regional Administration for Stool Lands has urged the general public whose documents are with the administrator of stool lands and has been destroyed by the fire to be at ease due to the backup system at the Lands Commission database.

He admits that the Sunday fire disaster at the administrator of stool lands premises will affect their daily operations, but with the help of a backup system the lands commission will do its possible best to mitigate any inconvenience.

Meanwhile, the Administrator of Stool Lands – Western Region, will hold a crisis meeting on Monday 6th May 2019 to assess the actual damage caused by the fire.

Speaking to the media, the Chairman of the Regional Lands Commission, Dr. Isaac K. Sagoe said the meeting will involve the National Fire Service, Police and the Sekondi-Takoradi Metropolitan Assembly, and officials from the Lands Commission as well as other relevant stakeholders.

The office of the Administrator of Stool Lands building is situated opposite the Western Regional Lands Commission building.

Information aptnewsghana gathered indicates that the inner perimeter of the administrator of Stool Lands premises is covered by 90% wooden structures. Aptnewsghana reporter Benjamin Bray can confirm that Fire Service managed to use about 5 fire tenders to manage the fire.

Also addressing the media, Divisional Officer of the Ghana National Fire Service, Veronica Naa Adjele Cole, indicated that her outfits had a hectic time controlling the fire due to inadequate access around the premises.

She further advised encroaches to stay away from the premises to avoid any further interruptions to on-going investigation.
