Dr Heloo made the remarks when she embarked on a fact finding mission to Agona Asafo in the Swedru Municipality of the Central Region to inspect fuel stations at the Winneba Junction and Swedru Township.

The inspection took the team to Benjoco Gas and Compass Oleum Stations both at Agona Jukwa where both stations did not meet the safety requirements and where served with letters to report to the EPA Head Office.

However Rich Oil at Agona Asafo had fulfilled all obligations and met all requirements.

She said the lives of the citizenry are valuable and precious than individual interests, hence the Ministry would not in any way compromise safety standards.

The Deputy Minister said the safety and protection of the citizenry is the responsibility of all and urged them to report any problem to the EPA and other regulatory bodies for immediate action.
