Former President John Dramani Mahama has backed calls for the government to declare a state of emergency in the communities affected by the spillage of the Akosombo dam.
The presidential candidate of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) said the scope of the flooding in the affected communities is bigger than what our economy can bear.
He said the President ought to the state of emergency so we can seek relief assistance from bilateral and multilateral partners.
The declaration he stressed must be done immediately.
He made the call through a Facebook post.
He wrote “It is clear that the scope and scale of the flooding of communities along the Volta River is bigger than our crippled economy can bear.
I recommend to Government to declare a State of Emergency in the affected areas and request relief assistance from our bilateral and multilateral partners immediately.”
