Below are some of the comments;

Sarfo Raphael Patrick thinks the donation is needless.

Needless. What was his contribution to the sea defense wall that was started by NPP president John Agyekum Kufuor to bring a permanent solution to the tidal waves that is causing all these problems? Tell your people to pay attention to the permanent solution than the needless show of care by Mahama. Mahama doesn't care about your people one bit . Why are u happy over this new negligible? No wonder he keeps on .....

Dziedzorm Gbamido Quashigah asked if the donation will stop the tidal waves.

Do you pay taxes to a political party? It's either you don't appreciate the distinction between government and a political party or you intended to score a political goal

NADMO distributes relief items to victims of tidal waves

YEN.com.gh earlier reported that the National Disaster Management Organization (NADMO), had gone to the aid of the victims affected by last Sunday, November 7, tidal waves.

The acting Director of the Volta Region NADMO, Volta Region, Ebenezer Azuma, according to a report filed by Starrfmonline.com said his outfit had begun the distribution of relief items.

Azuma said even though his outfit is distributing relief items, what they have is not enough to cater to all the victims that were hit in parts of Aflao and Keta.
