Minister of Works and Housing, Samuel Atta -Akyeah has said the current government is not only interested in solving the drainage challenges in Accra but is also focusing on solving all drainage challenges across the country.

According to the Minister, it does not only rain in Accra, but across the country and every region has a peculiar problem.

He further revealed that a contract sum of two million Ghana cedis has been awarded to promote logistics to construct drains and other projects within the Nsawam Adoagryiri Municipality to ease the annual flooding.

He also cautioned that we would be back to square one when people dump refuse into the drains, because the little money for other things would have to be used for desilting and that would stifle development.

Member of Parliament for the area, Frank Annoh Dompreh in an interview said the two hundred million Ghana cedi would capture the change road, Nsawam Prison Methodist and Osae Djan drains respectively.

He was grateful for the work done so far by the contractor as the project is expected to be completed in six months.

Assembly Man for Djan Krom East, Osafo Gyamfi said the community suffers from flooding whenever it rained and he was grateful to government for coming to their aid.
