Communications Director of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Nana Akomea says President John Dramani Mahama is “the chief vulture” none of his promises to curb the perennial flooding in Accra has been fulfilled.

President Mahama on his visit to the scene of the flood-induced fire disaster at the Goil Filling Station at the Kwame Nkrumah Circle close to the GCB Tower stated that some measures needed to be taken to avoid future occurrences. He added that Ghanaians should not behave like the vulture who says he would roof his house when the rain stops.

"A lot of people have lost their lives. I am at a loss for words to express how I feel, many of them through the floods and then many of them through the fire incident that took place here as the result of the explosion that took place in the filling station located right here. We have to take some measures to be able to avoid this in the future, ...I mean this loss of lives is catastrophic…we shouldn’t continue to be like the vulture who says he would roof his house when the rain stops. Year-in-year-out this continues to happen and until we attack it scientifically and strategically we will continue to have these problems,” President Mahama stated.

But Nana AKomea who believes there should be a better plan for restructuring the capital to curb the perennial flooding noted that it was inappropriate for the president to liken the attitude of the Ghanaian to the vulture when he [the president] exhibits similar symptoms.

The President says we sometimes behave like vultures…forgive me for saying this, but I believe the President is the chief vulture… The President, himself, is the Chief vulture because the statements he’s made from 2012 till now have not seen the light of the day. As soon as he says it and the sun rises, then he suddenly forgets. Then he will say the same thing another year, when the floods occur and properties are destroyed, he will then say the same thing again. So, it is true that we’re vultures but he is our leader," he said on Peace FM’s Kokrokoo.

Nana AKomea argued that the president and his agencies have failed to enforce bye-laws regarding the citing of buildings on waterways. He cited places like Asylum down, Adenta, Sodom and Gomorrah among others where such regulations appear to have been breached; yet, no one has been called to order.
