Appealing to Ghanaians and the general public, the National Disaster Management Organization (NADMO) has advised Ghanaians to stop buying and selling under GRIDCo's high tensions lines.
The Ga East Municipal NADMO Director, Mr. Seth Osei Kissi offered this advice after visiting Dome, Kwabenya, Agbogba, Ashongman, and other parts of the Municipality where people are doing business and are also staying under GRIDCo high tensions.
In an interview with Fox News, Mr. Seth kissi said the danger of trading under such high tension cables far outweigh the profits of any business transaction.
He revealed further that, due to the weight of the cables and fire outbreaks, the wires could snap or sag, thereby causing electrical shock.
He said this could lead to disabilities, life-threatening injuries, or even death.
Mr. Seth Kissi said the safest distance to the wires should be 5.5 meters or 11 steps away.
He further advised the public to observe the safety rules to avoid electrocution or any kind of electrical accident.
