Akosombo dam spillage: Every affected home will get relief – NADMO assures
The National Disaster Management Organisation (NADMO) has assured that every home affected by flooding in the Volta and parts of the Eastern regions will receive the relief and support they need to recover from the disaster.
The assurance came during an inspection of relief items aimed at assisting those impacted by the controlled spillage from the Akosombo Dam.
The relief items, which include toiletries, bags of rice and sugar, medications, plastic buckets with bowls, mattresses, canned foods, and drinking water, among other essentials, are intended to offer assistance to those adversely affected by the rising floodwaters.
During an inspection of the relief items on Friday, October 27, the Director General of NADMO, Nana Agyeman-Prempeh emphasised the organisation’s unwavering commitment to coordinate response efforts in managing the disaster.
He noted that, disasters do not discriminate based on tribe, political affiliation, or religion and urged unity and support for those affected by the harsh realities of climate change.
“NADMO will continue to carry out its mandate of coordinating all response efforts to manage disasters because when it strikes it doesn’t know ethnicity, political affiliation, or religion, so let’s unite and support our brothers and sisters who have been affected by this flooding situation as a result of the harsh realities of climate change,” he said.
Present at the brief ceremony were prominent officials, including the Deputy Minister for Information, Fatimatu Abubakar, the Deputy Director for NADMO, Seji Saji, District Chief Executive Officer (DCE), Osborn Divin Fenu and other high-profile dignitaries.
