President John Dramani Mahama has given a strong indication that the person whose negligence caused the collapse of the multi-storey Melcom building at Achimota would be dealt with.

The president also assured that specialized workers, as well as sniffer dogs would be brought on board to complement the “good work” of the combined rescue team underway.

President Mahama said he was on his campaign tour just approaching Bawku when he heard about the unfortunate incident and immediately had to suspend the tour to return to Accra.

“Whoever is responsible for this negligence here will pay a price,” he told the media, after a brief inspection of the scene.
