Akosombo Dam Spillage: Govt’s Focus Is To Provide Essential Assistance To Victims ~ Oppong Nkrumah

The government says it is committed to helping the victims of the Akosombo Dam spillage to rebuild their lives and return to normalcy.

It has debunked reports of apathy in dealing with the victims of the disaster.

There have been growing demands for the government to consider relocating the affected individuals to the Saglemi Housing project temporarily.

In response in a press briefing, Information Minister Kojo Oppong emphasized that the government’s immediate focus is on providing essential assistance to the victims.

He added that the spillage of the Volta Region has necessitated the establishment of twenty dedicated centres to accommodate people affected by the flooding.

“These are our brothers and sisters in various parts of the region, and the topography is such that twenty centres have been set up to accommodate people from nearby villages affected by the flooding exercise.

According to him, this approach aims to prevent their situation from deteriorating further during this challenging period.

Additionally, Mr Oppong Nkrumah added that the government plans to assist them in returning to their home communities once the water levels subside.

“The focus is to ensure that the people who have been relocated to these twenty centres are supported with the necessary food, sleeping materials, healthcare, etc, so that their situation does not become more precarious than it is now and then after that, when the water levels recede, to assist them to go back to their communities.”
