Mr Ibrahim Halidu, the Assembly Member for Alajo North Electoral Area in the Ayawaso Central of the Greater Accra Region is appealing to government to support the people at Geraldo, a community in the Electoral Area by completing the Onyasia River project.
He made the appeal following the downpour on Saturday 22nd and Monday, 24th May 2022, that hit Accra and exposed their vulnerability.
Mr Halidu who has been visiting the affected residents in the Electoral said when the construction of the drain would help to collect the volumes of water from upstream which caused the flooding whenever it rained leading to the destruction of property and loss of lives in the area.
“The people living at Geraldo area had their property destroyed and unfortunately lost a lady who left behind two young kids”
He also attributed the flooding in the community to a bridge which connected the road from Alajo to Kotobabi.
Mr Halidu called on government to consider diverting the rain water from Abelempke which descended and caused flood in some parts of Alajo North especially the Railway and the Christ Ambassadors Areas.
