The Savannah Regional Organizer of the National Democratic Congress, Mr Abdulai Inusah has placed the blame of floods in parts of the Savannah Region at the doorstep of the NPP government.
According to him if the government of the day hadn’t stopped the construction of the various roads that former President John 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 these Akuffo Addo- Bawumia government decided to Abaddon the projects and also stopped the construction of the Daboya township roads”, he added.
He noted that 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.
According to the NDC Organizer 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 persons decision not to continue his predecessors road projects.
Mr Inusah therefore called on the Akuffo-Addo – Bawumia led 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.
He also urged 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.
