Mr Ebenezer Simpson, Director Fire Safety of GNFS, said removal of such buildings would reduce the number of valuables lost in fire outbreaks....
He also expressed concern that some traders are using their tables and stalls to cover the hydrants, which make it difficult for firefighters to get access to them during emergencies.
Mr Simpson noted that the rate at which people are losing their valuable properties to fire is alarming, hence the need for all to contribute to ensure a fire-free society.
Mr Moses Aboh, Assemblyman for Kokomlemle, said a contract had been signed for all cables in the market to be changed but for about a year the work is yet to commence, leaving the traders to do business under such conditions.
He called on the contractor to undertake the project to ensure the safety of all.
