President Akufo-Addo and his Cabinet are undergoing a three-day retreat to address the economic and humanitarian crisis in Lower Volta following the Akosombo and Kpong Dams spillage.
The retreat is scheduled after the International Monetary Fund approves the next $600 million payment support for Ghana, following a staff agreement.
The President and his appointees will also discuss the devastating effect of the spillage of the dam which has rendered thousands homeless in the Volta, Eastern and parts of the Greater Accra Regions.
The President had visited the affected areas and assured them of government support.
Akufo-Addo gave the assurance when he visited the residents of Mepe and surrounding areas on Monday to ascertain the devastation caused by the spillage.
“The coordination is about the immediate and the most important thing was to ensure the life of people and that is why 9 centres were established for all the displaced people and all the people in these 9 centres have been provided relief items by NADMO, and it is NADMO’s intention to continue to provide relief items. Apart from what NADMO is doing, we must also think about the future.”
