WR Minister blames Tuesday’s flooding on engineering problem
The Western Regional Minister, Kwabena Okyere Darko-Mensah has blamed Tuesday’s massive flooding on the Takoradi-Agona-Nkwanta highway on an engineering problem around the St. Mary’s Secondary School.
The flooding incident left the highway unmotorable and many commuters stranded.
Kwabena Okyere Darko Mensah said this while touring the receded flooded area with officials from the National Disaster Management Organisation (NADMO) on Wednesday morning.
He said funds will be sought to reengineer drains in the area to avert any occurrence of flooding in the future.
He said the investments required are huge and so temporary measures will be put in place to manage the situation.
Meanwhile, the Regional NADMO Officer, Abdul Ganiyu said the relevant stakeholders will meet to deliberate on ways to address the issue and begin work immediately.
