Bank of Ghana Fire Outbreak Reports False

The Bank of Ghana (BoG) has denied reports about a fire outbreak within their premises.

This comes after reports of an alleged fire incident at the Central Bank went viral on social media, Thursday morning.

A statement released by the BoG to this effect states that it was only conducting a routine fire drill, a simulation exercise to prepare staff for real-time fire situation.

Part of the statement reads that: “the exercise was conducted in collaboration with the Ghana National Fire Service, the National Ambulance Service and the Ghana Police Service.”

The statement also adds that: “it is necessary for testing the efficiency and preparedness of the Bank’s safety systems to manage emergencies.”

The central bank of Ghana has since advised the general public to disregard the report.
