It is well!
Meanwhile, The Volta River Authority (VRA), managers of the Akosombo Dam, have been compelled to conduct a spillage of the dam because of a "consistent rise in the inflow pattern and water level" following the rains.
Scenes from Akosombo as the dam had destroyed the livelihoods of many and displaced them.
Ghanaians shared their views on the situation in Akosombo
Aaaaah this is too much. Prayersto them
The way I related to this as if it’s my county… African politicians are a mess. It’s so sad
By now, they should have made reservoirs to contain the spillage and use them back when the shortage happens, but no, they're busy hoarding money and casting akutia nkoaa.
One Instagram user, @lk_e_l_v_i_nl, explained the situation in the comment section, he said:
As someone who works with the VRA, lemme help explain the situation we are currently facing.
The water coming from Burkina Faso and the north has caused the water levels at the Akosombo dam to rise above normal levels; now, if some of the water is not spilt, the dam will break, which will become a catastrophe for Ghanaians and our neighbouring countries. The villages and towns flooded were able to be established because of the blockade the dam serves as, but because of the spillage, the water has now crept into its original path where settlers are now as a result of flooding.
lk_e_l_v_i_nl further explained:
The spillage was initially planned for only 8 days, which wouldn’t have caused this many problems, but because of the incoming water from the north, it’s making it impossible for the water levels to go down as expected. As a result, the spillage still continues. My thoughts and prayers go to the affected citizens.
