Heavy downpour in the wee hours of Tuesday, 24th May, 2022 yet again exposed the city’s failed drainage systems. Some residents had their rooms flooded owing to the volume of rain.
This comes less than a week after rains submerged a number of places.
The Greater Accra Regional NADMO Director, Archibold Cobbina in an interview on Accra based 3 FM said about twenty persons have been rescued in the City since the rains began.
“A lot of areas have been flooded. Areas like Ledzokuku, some parts of Tema, Sakaman, parts of Spintex road, Odorkor, Circle, Kaneshie First Light, among others”, he explained.
Mr. Cobbina said “about twenty people have been rescued around Dansoman, Odorkor, Dzowulu but others are also in other parts for the same rescue mission”.
“What we are trying to do is recuse them”.
The NADMO Director noted that “when they see that it is raining, that is where people bring out refuse and dump them into the raining waters”.
“People have dumped refuse right in the middle of the road at Sakaman”.
