The Safety Advocate and President of NASACA, Daniel Asuku has raised an alarm bell over the flooding disasters awaiting to strike hundreds of scrupulous settlers in flood-prone areas in Weija in Greater Accra Region and Kasoa in the Central Region.
According to him, it is the time for the state safety regulatory institutions to sit up and take contingent actions and measures to relocate those who are in flood-prone areas in Weija and Kaso enclaves in order to save the lives and properties since "we are in the rainfall season in Ghana."
The news item by the President of NASACA, Mr Daniel Asuku and captured by Soireenews. com, reads in part; "Once again, NASACA has visited parts of the Weija/Kasoa enclave among other flood prone areas in Accra following the slight downpours on Thursday and Friday, and love to re-echo this campaign message Operation Save Weija/Kasoa from Floods.
Talking floods in the country, the Weija enclave happens to be most valuable currently.
Correspondence from other cities nationwide also pose to spell flood doom.
Even as we're yet to enter the heavy season, any known and yet-to-know flood related havocs are already mounting such places.
As part of this very campaign, we have cautioned dwellers "relocate in peace before you do so in pieces"
A number of apartments in such areas are no longer good for habitation.
We continue to monitor demolition by respective authorities of which many seem be pleased with but NASACA says NO! Say No to Demolition
#Demolish underperforming officials before illegal structures
Property owners have ever resorted to the erection of walls, tiling and filling.
NASACA continues to question those approach in the equation of fetching solution for the subject matter and has proposed stilt housing.
For sure, there are institutions responsible for this with qualified, better still, trusted brains that can effect some positive changes to this habitual canker.
With us, such units must be persuaded to act fast. Should that fail, forced, as the saying go.
In case the Republic lacks the able knowledge, lets consider importation.
NASACA sees as shame for a people to go thirsty at drought and suffer flooding during wet.
For we are SAFETY conscious as a society in our own interest.
What more, the SAFETY of a people is the HEALTH and WEALTH of same.Don't wait till it occurs.
