The Interior Minister, Mr Prosper Bani, has been touring the areas which were affected by Thursday’s floods that brought activities in the Accra metropolis to a standstill.

The Minister was accompanied by Greater Accra Regional Minister, Nii Afotey Agbo, Local Government Minister, Alhaji Collins Dauda, Minister of Environment, Science and Technology,  Mr Mahama Ayariga, Coordinator of the National Disaster Management Organization (NADMO), Brigadier General Francis Vib Sanziri and Chairman of the Jospong Group of Companies, Mr Joseph Agyapong Siaw.

The tour took the Ministers through Kwame Nkrumah Circle, Adabraka Official Town, Sahara and Odawna. It afforded them the opportunity to have first-hand information and also sympathised with some of the victims.

Addressing the media, Mr Bani said the floods did not record fatalities due to the dredging work that has been going on.

He said some of the problems are attitudinal. Some residents in these communities often dump solid waste in drains.

He called for a partnership between his ministry and the media, to deepen awareness about attitudinal change.
