Akosombo Dam Spillage: Victims reoccupying their homes – NADMO

The National Disaster Management Organization (NaDMO) has revealed that some individuals affected by the flooding in certain regions due to the Akosombo dam spillage are now going back to their residences. This comes as the floodwaters have receded, and several communities have undergone fumigation in the weeks following the spillage.

During an interview on the AM Show on JoyNews, Seji Saji Amedonu, the Deputy Director-General of Technical and Reforms for NADMO, mentioned that the organization is actively pumping out the remaining floodwater from various communities. Amedonu explained that different structures experienced varying levels of inundation, with some completely covered, some at the base level, and others at the window level or lower. Residents are returning to their homes as the water diminishes.

He added that after the water receded, certain areas dried out completely, and fumigation was carried out. However, there are still pools of water in the Mepe township, and efforts are underway to pump the water into a channel leading back to the river.

Amedonu noted, “Quite a lot of people have returned to their homes,” highlighting the ongoing work to manage the aftermath of the flooding.

According to NaDMO, over 26,000 people were displaced and left homeless due to the disaster. The Director-General of the Ghana Education Service (GES), Eric Nkansah, also reported that teaching and learning have resumed in 81 out of 108 schools affected by the Akosombo Dam spillage in nine districts.
