The residents, who are among the worst hit by floods anytime it rains in Accra, said they will be forced to demonstrate against the government due to the situation, and impressed on authorities to permanently address the problem.

Several properties and sometimes lives are lost as a result of the flooding in the area, particularly when the Odaw river which flows passes through the community and receives waste water from other parts of the capital, overflows its banks.
