The National Disaster Management Organisation (NADMO) has stepped in to provide temporary housing for residents displaced by flooding along the Accra-Winneba Highway.

The flooding has impacted over 150 homes in Gomoa Mampong, following a collapse in parts of the highway.

This was a result of the Ayensu River being rerouted by a contractor working on the Kasoa-Cape Coast Highway project.

In an interview with Citi News, Robert Hackman, the Gomoa East NADMO coordinator, mentioned that his team is working closely with other agencies to prevent further complications.

“We evacuated people from their homes and sheltered them at the nearest Pentecost Church. I had a call from my director general and that of my regional minister that they are bringing in relief items. In fact, the contractor met us before the commencement of the work but unfortunately, this incident happened.

“I don’t want to blame him that much. I think it is natural but going forward, I think he [the contractor] is going to collaborate with us in any technical advice that we have to give so that together, we can make this work easier for both of us.”
