The Deputy Communications Director of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Fred Agbenyo is calling on government to take pragmatic and bold steps rescue the country from perennial flooding.

Speaking on Peace FM’s Kokrokoo, Mr. Agbenyo indicated that the government should not be afraid to take strict decisions since a transformation always faces an opposition. According to him, for the country to develop, some sacrifices would have to be made.

In transforming a society and transforming people, no matter what you will step on some toes, you’ll clear some people, you’ll sacrifice some people before you can get the ideal environment and situation that you want to create. So, in our quest to do the right thing, if people threaten you that election time will draw near and so because you also want to win political power, we ignore the right thing that we are supposed to do; how would we manage the country?

“…if by doing the right thing for mother Ghana and as a consequence somebody says he will vote against you; so be it. Posterity will judge you”, he said.

Many have blamed the government for failing to put measures in place to curb the perennial flooding in the country especially, the capital city, Accra. Reports indicate that some structures are built on waterways making the city prone to flooding. Attempts by authorities to raze them down led to many vehemently chastising them.

Last Wednesday, over 200 people lost their lives while properties running into millions of cedis got destroyed by the torrential rains that fell for over three hours.

Some people had gathered in front of a Pharmacy Shop at the Kwame Nkrumah Circle near the Goil Filling Station adjacent to the GBC Towers to seek for refuge from the heavy downpour but unfortunately lost their lives following a fire outbreak at the Goil filling station.
