Mahama visits Accra's flooded areas
Thursday’s floods in Accra have prompted President John Dramani Mahama to visit areas affected.
The floods destroyed several properties, leaving residents stranded and frustrated. The President visited the areas affected to assess the extent of damage to property and lives.
So far President Mahama has visited Mallam and South Odorkor. He offered his sympathies to the flood victims and emphasised the need for a drainage system to be constructed across the NI highway to address the problem.
The Ministry of Finance is to release funds for the drain to be constructed immediately.
The President also called for extensive education of residents by the Accra Metropolitan Assembly and all other state agencies involved to effect behaviour change in waste management practices.
