The Bank of Ghana (BoG) has dismissed reports about a fire outbreak on its premises.
In a Twitter post to respond to the claim that the fire has gutted the building, BoG said it only conducted a routine fire drill to prepare staff for real-time fire situations.
It said the drill 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,” the Central Bank said.
The BoG has therefore advised the general public to disregard the false reports which they say is “intended to create fear and panic in the country.”
