Some fuel stations at Mankessim which were ordered by a task force led by the Municipal Chief Executive [MCE] of Mfantsiman, Kenneth Kelly Essuman to be closed down have been reopened.

ATL FM News has gathered these fuel stations started operation on Thursday after providing evidence of documents granting them the permit to operate.

On Monday, the Municipal Chief Executive of Mfantseman, Kenneth Kelly Essuman ordered the closure of some fuel stations in his municipality for failing to produce certificates authenticating their operation within the area.

Some of the stations could not produce, on demand, their fire certificates, certificate to operate and certificates from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

Mr. Essuman said the recent demise of seven people and the injuring of scores of others by explosions at some gas and fuel stations in Accra was enough caution for him to take the step to ensure the safety of lives and property within his area.
