Former President John Mahama has commiserated with 2016 Progressive People’s Party (PPP) flagbearer, Dr Kwesi Nduom after fire gutted his properties last Saturday evening.
The former President in a post on his Facebook wall said “my thoughts are with Dr and Mrs Nduom and workers of Groupe Nduom”.
The inferno did not happen at the Coconut Grove Regency hotel at Kanda in Accra as earlier reported. The incident occurred at buildings owned by Groupe Nduom which also shares the same premises as Coconut Groove Regency Hotel at Kanda in Accra.
The affected building included GN bank’s corporate office and media station, ATV.
The fire is reported to have started at a section of the hotel that houses the office of the GN bank.
No casualty has been recorded yet but properties running into several thousands of cedis have gone up in flames.
Although the cause of the fire has not been established, a statement by the Corporate Affairs of Groupe Nduom said it came from the direction of an air condition Amansan Television station.
“Regency Hotel and its restaurant, guest rooms and conference facilities are intact and were not touched by the fire.”
“It has become apparent after about an hour and a half that the Fire Service personnel have not been able to contain the fire at the studio, he said adding by that time the fire has spread to other offices on the same block as the ATV studio.”
Interior Minister, Ambrose Dery has called for an investigation into the incident that has lost.
