The government has set-up an inter-ministerial team to coordinate the government’s response to the flooding occasioned by spilling from the Volta dam.

The spillage of the Akosombo and Kpong Dams has wreaked massive havoc in communities in the Eastern and Volta Regions submerging homes, destroying farmlands and rendering numerous persons homeless.

The situation which has persisted for days has taken many by surprise including NADMO who say they never expected the situation to deteriorate this much.

In a statement signed by the Minister for Information, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah indicated that the Committee will be headed by Chief of Staff at the presidency.  

“On the instruction of the President of the Republic, an inter- ministerial team headed by the Chief of Staff has been set-up to coordinate government’s response to the unfortunate flooding of some communities following spilling from the Volta dam,” Mr. Oppong Nkrumah stated.
