The government is taking action to combat flooding in Accra, and the demolition exercise in the La Dade-Kotopon Municipal Assembly is part of this effort.
The Minister for the sector, Francis Asenso-Boakye, expressed concern about the growing frequency of flooding and the role of human activities in causing disasters.
The Assembly is currently organizing the necessary resources to carry out the demolition on 785 buildings that are situated in the waterways.
The Minister identified areas such as Tseaddo, Kpeshie Reserves, Railway Reserve Line at Roman Ridge, Villagio site, Amanfro, and Teshi Bush Road in the Ledzokuku Municipal Assembly as having destroyed buffers designed to hold stormwater.
He emphasized that the Ministry would enforce the law to deter others from repeating these actions.
He stressed the need for everyone to be concerned about the impact of floods, which take lives and damage property, as well as human capital required for national development.
