Mr Sampson Tetteh KpankpahHe commended Electrochem Ghana for responding to the request by the Assembly to release some of its equipment such as excavators to dredge existing canals and create new waterways that quickened the recession of the water from the badly drenched communities into the ocean.
Excavator dredging existing canals to create new waterwaysWhen interviewed, some residents of Wokumagbe who had to literally salvage their properties from the ferocious flood that gushed into the community on Thursday expressed excitement over the prompt response by the District Assembly and Electrochem Ghana to their distress call which timeously saved the disastrous situation. Gladys Akwetey, a native of Wokumagbe said “the assembly and Electrochem Ghana stepped in quickly and saved a situation that we were uncertain about. I cannot hide my excitement and praise for them.” She said although the community has been experiencing recurrent flooding, the volume of water that ran into the community and the intensity were very high and scary. Another indigene of the area, Isaac Amanor, thanked the District Chief Executive, officials from the National Disaster Management Organisation (NADMO) and Electrochem Ghana for the coming in to create more access ways to channel the water into the sea. “I guess the community would have been submerged by now but for their intervention; they deserve commendation”, he emphasized.
