so openghana.com has sited a video circulating on social media Facebook and what App to precise where a young man known as Eric Asare Boadu has bought fuel for the Ghana Fire service at Kwahu mpraeso in the eastern region just to enable them fight fire outbreak at Kwahu Nkawtia.
Below is how he narrated his story
So today 3rd January, 2020 around 10: 9 am in the morning we had a fire outbreak next to my house at Kwahu Nkawtia in the Eastern Region as usual we called the fire service at Kwahu Mpreaso around 10:16am and we waited for almost 25 minutes but they didn’t show up meanwhile from Mpraeso to Kwahu Nkwatia (the fire scene) is 3mins drive.
After 25 minutes I personally took dropping to Mpeaso to call them but they told me their fire thunder has broken down a month ago so they called enforcement from Nkawkaw all in the eastern Region.
The thunder from Nkawkaw came after 16 minutes of waiting, now half way to the fire scene at Nkwatia the fire thunder (car) stopped to my surprise the driver told me they are out fuel .
Several calls to their various DFO’s failed, astonishingly one DFO at Nkawkaw told the fire men to leave the car there and return to the office because he has no money for fuel .
Meanwhile we have already wasted 55 minutes leaving the 5 bedroom to burn to ashes so as a good citizen I personally bought 100 cedis diesel (fuel) to enable them to continue to the fire scene to quench the fire.
Upon their arrival the 5 bedroom had already burned to ashes.
God save mother Ghana
