Akuffo Addo’s decision to abandon roads in Savannah region caused the recent flooding.

The Savannah regional organizer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) Inusah Abdulai has blamed the recent flooding in parts of the region on the government’s decision to abandon the construction of roads started by the previous government.

“If the government of the day hadn’t stopped the construction of the various roads that Mahama was constructing before leaving office, this unfortunate situation would have been reduced by now”.

In a statement copied to www.diamondfmonline.com Inusah Abdulai said “the stalled Daboya-Busunu highway project if it had completed could have eased the current flooding situations, we find ourselves. But this Akuffo Addo- Bawumia government decided to abandon the projects and also stopped the construction of the Daboya township roads”.

Below is the full release from the Savannah regional NDC organizer, Inusah Abdulai.

SAVANNAH REGIONAL NDC ORGANIZER BLAMES NPP GOVERNMENT OVER THE FLOODS IN THE REGION.

It’s very worrying situation seeing the routes to some constituencies in Savannah region cut out of entry over the current floods that engulf the Region. This floods situation has affected a lot of economic activities in the region.

I noted this in my travels around the communities and some constituencies to sympathize and commiserate with the flood victims whose livelihood and properties has been destroyed, various farms have also been affected.

This comes at a time when economic conditions in the country is highly above the average Ghanaian and the Savanna region is no exception. The hikes in food commodities in the local markets and also at a time when the prices of foodstuff have risen above the average Ghanaian in the country.

Farmers in the Region shouldn’t have undergone such a trauma over a single person’s decision not to continue his predecessor’s road projects.

A place like Daboya has been cut off completely. And entry from Busunu to Daboya has been affected and the other entry route from Tolon-Daboya road is critically affected.

If the government of the day hadn’t stopped the construction of the various roads that Mahama was constructing before leaving office, this unfortunate situation would have been reduced by now.

The stalled Daboya-Busunu highway project if it had completed could have eased the current flooding situations, we find ourselves. But this Akuffo Addo- Bawumia government decided to abandon the projects and also stopped the construction of the Daboya township roads.

I call on the NPP Akuffo Addo- Bawumia government to as a matter of fact continue the construction of the Tamale-Makango Road, the Daboya township roads and a bridge over the white volta.

The government of the day must quickly evacuate adequate relief items to the affected areas and deal with the situation with the maximum attention it deserves.

Thanks.
