Former President John Mahama has commiserated with businessman and politician Dr Papa Kwesi Nduom following a fire at the popular Coconut Grove Hotel.
The former president posted his consolatory message on his official Facebook account on Sunday morning, April 23, 2017.
“Yesterday’s fire at Coconut Grove Regency Hotel is a major loss to our hospitality industry. My thoughts are with Dr and Mrs Nduom and workers of Groupe Nduom”, he said.
A statement from Groupe Nduom, the parent company, said the fire started at Amansan Television and engulfed other offices but did not get to the hotel itself, which are all in the same premises.

The ATV studio and four commercial offices of Groupe Nduom are on the same block…It is important to note that the Regency Hotel and its restaurant, guest rooms and conference facilities are intact and were not touched by the fire”, a statement from the company said.
Dr Nduom contested the 2016 general elections as the candidate of the Progressive People’s Party, which he founded.
