The recent flooding in various parts of Accra have called for a recap of what the President said in 2019 about drainages in the country
In a video which has started making waves on the internet, the president revealed that he is not prepared to spend the monies of Ghanaians by constructing drainages which would be destroyed by some citizens as a result of refuse dumping.
‘‘Up till today, whilst the Odaw River is been dredged, some people think that the best way to dispose of rubbish is to throw it in the gutter, how do we stop flooding with this attitude?’’
Addressing a meeting with the Ghanaians community in Toronto, Canada, Nana Akufo-Addo said: “no amount of investment aimed at finding a solution to Accra flooding will work if our people continue this way. I am not prepared to spend your monies in that way" he said.

He advised persons who throw refuse into the gutters to stop doing that because it will cause flooding in the long run.
