GRASAG, SRC Secure Temporary Accommodation For Students Affected By The Atomic Junction Gas Explosion

The leadership of the Graduate Students' Association of Ghana (GRASAG) and Students' Representative Council (SRC) of the University of Ghana have made alternative arrangements for students resident in Evandy, Bani, African Union and James Topp Nelson Yankah halls who might be affected in one way or the other, to spend the night at other halls on the main campus.

This was contained in two separate statements issued by the executives of the two associations following the Atomic Junction gas explosion.

"All students who are in the James Topp Nelson Yankah hall and environs (Evandy, Bani, African Union Hall) are to note that the SRC has successfully advocated for their residence outside their respective rooms to be catered for this evening," a statement from SRC said.

In this regard, the University is providing extra beds and other relief items that would guarantee their comfortable stay this evening. Shuttles have also been made available to transport students to specific halls of their choice.

A gas station at Atomic Junction in Accra went up in flames on Saturday evening. So far, one person has been confirmed dead with several others injured as a result of the incident. This was confirmed by the deputy Director of the National Disaster Management Organization (NADMO), Abu Ramadan. He said the deceased jumped from the overpass at the junction because he panicked over the explosion.

Mr. Ramadan told Citi News that several other injured persons have been rushed to the hospital.

A reporter, Franklin Badu Jnr, reported from the University of Ghana Hospital that several injured victims are being treated.

He added that because it is a small hospital, some of the seriously injured victims are being transferred to Korle Bu and the 37 Military hospital.

Students are reminded to take personal responsibility for their safety and guard against unscrupulous persons who may take undue advantage of the situation.

For any assistance, get in touch with the GRASAG president Mr Ato Browwn on 0244270888.
