Ibrahim Mahama Donates To 20,000 Homes Affected By The Akosombo Dam Spillage

The Mepe and other surrounding communities affected by the flood, yesterday received various relief items from business magnate, Ibrahim Mahama, following the spillage of the Akosombo Dam.

The items, included 20,000 bags of 5kg rice, 24,000 cans of Mackerel, 12,000 bottles of cooking oil, 400 packs of water and 1,000 pieces of student mattresses.

The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Engineers & Planners and Dzata Cement, personally sent the relief items to the victims of the dam spill.

At Mepe, Mr Mahama and his team, were welcomed with a durbar by the Chiefs, Queen mothers, the DCE, the MP’s representatives, NPP supporters and others.

The people in the affected communities, appeared united by their common predicament

The durbar was held at GP JHS Park at Mepe. The items will be distributed across Central, South, North Tongu and Keta constituencies.

Mr Mahama’s donation is said to be the biggest support yet from an individual or any institution to the displaced people, some of whom are having to lodge in abandoned schools, tents, churches and mosques, because their homes have massively been taken over by flood water spilt out because the Akosombo Dam was in danger of collapse with many towns and villages at risk.
The industrial city of Tema, was at the risk of being wiped out by water, if the water had not been let out by the Volta River Authority (VRA) and the dam would have collapsed.

Presenting the items, Mr Mahama, said “the relief items are to commiserate with the people following the Dam spillage”.

He also promised to help brilliant, but needy students affected by the flood.

Receiving the items on behalf of the community, the DCE for North Tongu, Divine Osborn Fenu, thanked Mr Mahama and his team for the massive donation.
