Whenever it rains in Accra and there are floods, many people blame the leaders of this country for not doing their best to solve flood problems in the City.
Well, an old video of President Nana Akufo-Addo claiming he is not ready to misuse taxpayer’s money to solve flood problems in Ghana has popped up a day after Accra flooded after Monday evening heavy downpour.
In the video, Nana Addo indicated that if people do not change their behavior of throwing garbage in gutters when it rains, he would not spend Ghana;s money on it because it will go waste.
“We want this, we want that but the attitudinal change that will enable us to bring value to these demands that is always left out. Up till today, whiles the Odor river is being dredged, there are still people at home when the rains come think that the easiest way to deal with dirt in the house is to throw it out into the gutter.
Those things have to come to a stop. We all have to speak to each other to bring those things to a stop because if we don’t, no matter the investment that we make at the end of the day we will be back to square one and I’m not prepared to spend your money in that way again”.
