The Bank of Ghana has rubbished claims circulating on social media about the Bank being gutted in a fire.
In a post today, Thursday, December 8, 2022, on FaceBook, the bank said it decided to conduct a routine fire drill (simulation exercise) to prepare its staff for a real-time fire situation.
“The exercise was conducted in collaboration with the Ghana National Fire Service, the National Ambulance Service, and the Ghana Police Service. “
“As a public facility, routine fire drill is necessary for testing the efficiency and preparedness of the Bank’s safety systems to manage emergencies like fires, and inculcate in the staff of the Bank fire safety evacuation procedures.” BoG said.
The Bank has therefore cautioned the general public and the media against the false reportage intended to create fear and panic in the country.
