Okudzeto sad Akufo-Addo ignored VRA flood victims in #SONA24

Member of Parliament for North Tongu, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa has expressed worry over the President ignoring the plight of some 40,000 victims of the VRA spillage.

He describes what the president did as un-Ghanaian considering the plight of the communities that suffered from the spillage.

“It is most condemnable, unpresidential and un-Ghanaian for President Akufo-Addo to in his Message on the State of the Nation totally ignore the plight of 40,000 VRA spillage victims, some of whom remain displaced and continue to live in refugee-like tents 5 months and counting without governmental resettlement and compensation. A really sad day.”

The once vibrant communities of Battor, Tefle, Mepe, Sogakope, Adidome, and Anlo were all submerged under water. 

Over 40,000 people according to the National Disaster Management Organisation (NaDMO) were displaced and rendered homeless.

Some institutions and individuals have since presented relief items to residents.
