The residents of Bremang UGC in the Suame municipality of the Ashanti Region hit the streets on Wednesday, 10 July 2019 to demonstrate against the siting of a fuel station in the vicinity.

The angry residents say the station has been sited very close to their homes and, therefore, want it to be moved away in accordance with the regulation of the National Petroleum Authority (NPA) which prescribes that there be, at least, a 100-metre buffer between residential facilities and fuel stations.

The angry residents wore red bands and held placards with inscriptions such as: “June 3rd incident must not happen Mr President”, “Our lives are in danger”, “Save us from this life-threatening course”, “The rich must not always win”, “There must be rule of law in this country”, among others.

They recalled instances of gas explosions and fuel station fire outbreaks at Asokwa and Krofrom in which many people were either killed or seriously injured.

The angry residents told Kumasi FM's Elisha Adarkwah that several complaints have been channelled to the necessary authorities but work on the station has resumed to their surprise.

They, therefore, pleaded with President Nana Akufo-Addo and Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II to intervene to stop the life-threatening project.
