There has been a delay in distribution of relief items to the affected people of the recent tidal waves due to processes and mobilization of the items.
Although it has been three days after the tragic incident, the affected persons are yet to receive the items.
The Municipal chief executive, Hon. Maxwell Lugudor, assure the people that he had received assurance from the National Disaster Management Organization (NADMO) to the effect that relief items will be presented on Tuesday.
He said, “They were putting our things together to help the victims. With our place, because we are closer to the lagoon; we are able to pump the water from the ground into the lagoon so our place is totally dry now. The NADMO officials are yet to get to the grounds with the relief items,”
The Municipal Chief Executive assured the people that he will go all out to ensure that the needs of victims are well taken care of and that they must exercise patient.
“The delay is from NADMO and I don’t want to blame anybody. They also have their challenges. I don’t know why they delayed but they may be mobilizing their stuff before they provide them”. He added.
Thousands of residents in the Anlo District, Ketu South, and Keta Municipalities were rendered homeless after tidal waves swept through their homes on Sunday dawn.
The Volta Regional Minister, Dr. Archibald Letsa, has also asked Ghanaians to extend hands in support whilst assuring that the government will come through with some form of relief.
