Government spokesperson on infrastructure for the Nana Addo-led administration Richard Asante Yeboah, has refuted claims by the opposition NDC that the people of Ketu South have been abandoned by the government, especially NADMO in providing them with relief items.
He said the district NADMO officials of Ketu South have been in the affected areas hit by the tidal wave to aid the victims with supplies and to assess the situation over there. He also pointed out that even though NADMO have been in the affected areas, he thinks their effort is not enough to alleviate their plight and thus expects more from government in that direction.
Mr Yeboah pointed out in an interview with Berla Mundi on the New Day show on TV3, Friday, June 4, that private individuals and Non-Governmental Organizations(NGOs) have been to Ketu South to help and support the victims in the community to cope with the impact of the disaster. He however underscored the point that considering the impact of the wave on the people, these efforts and aids are not enough to cater for the people.
