The Ghana Ports and Harbours Authority (GHAPOHA) has been advised to as a matter of urgency in line with their corporate social responsibility assist in providing relief items to the People of the Volta Coast line affected by the tidal waves.

The Member of Parliament for South Dayi, Nelson Dafeamekpor who made the call at a press briefing in parliament said while GHAPOHA is looking for the money to construct the Keta Port, it is important to safeguard the lives of the people in the area other than that, by the time the port project is completed, there would be nobody to use the facility.

“GHAPOHA just said through the Ministry of transport that they need six hundred million dollars to build the port of Keta and I want to tell GHAPOHA that if you to spend six hundred million dollars to build a sea port at Keta, you must go in and help the people of Keta, otherwise by the time you’re ready to build six hundred million sea port there would be nobody to use the sea port that you intend to construct.”

Mr. Dafeamekpor who chides the government through the National Disaster Management Organisation (NADMO) failed to respond to the needs of the tidal waves victims in the three Constituencies along the coast of the Volta Region also called on well-meaning Ghanaians and corporate organisations to come to the aid of the thousands of residents displaced by the disaster.
