- MP for Lower Manya, Ebenezer Terlabi, has stated that President Akufo-Ado's tour of areas affected by floods, would yield no rewards
- According to him, it is necessary for stakeholders to meet and plan of long-term solutions
The Member of Parliament (MP) for Lower Manya constituency, Ebenezer Terlabi, has raised concerns about President Akufo-Addo’s visits to areas affected by floods in recent times.
According to him, stakeholders need to meet and brainstorm on best ways to deal with the periodic floods.
In his opinion, "there is a lack of coordination as far as development in this country is concerned. We need to sit down and fashion out alternatives.
Akufo-Addo going on tour will not solve the problem. He needs to sit with all the stakeholders and really analyse the cause of the problem, and how to solve it."
His comments come after the president inspected the dredging of the Odaw river, as well as other huge drains in Accra.
Per a Peacefmonline.com report, there are about twenty-one (21) dredging and desilting works currently ongoing in the Greater Accra region.
In addition, there are 11 storm drains currently under construction in some selected areas in the capital.
