A footage of a bridge commissioned by Ursula Owusu, just four months ago, has surfaced it was washed away by overrunning water and recorded live on camera.
On January 11, 2020, news broke that the honourable Minister of Communications and Member of Parliament for Ablekuma West Constituency had constructed a floating bridge over Chemu Lagoon.
It was reported that the special bridge was made with a floating ability to ensure that any time the lagoon overflowed its banks the bridge automatically rose or floated and returned to its current position when the floods subsided.
See video below:
Clearly, that did not happen when the rains started to set in as the bridge was simply carried away by gentle waves of a flood as though nothing held it together in position.
In the fast-trending video, residents of the area were seen shouting and cheering as the bridge got carried away by the flood.
Reports indicate that they have currently resorted to some temporary wooden structures to facilitate movement whilst plans are taken to resolve the damages.
In another interesting report, Times Higher Education University Impact Rankings has placed Ashesi University as the first in Ghana, 9th in Africa and one of the top 400 worldwide for 2020.
In an article sighted by YEN.com.gh on Ashesi.edu.gh, it is indicated that the criteria for the ranking included the measure of actions taken by universities to advance the UN's Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Furthermore, the measures taken are expected to show proof of promoting social and economic wellbeing around the entire world.
