Government Unveils Six-Month Plan to Resettle Akosombo Dam Spillage Victims

The government has launched a program to relocate communities affected by the Akosombo Dam spillage. Led by the Ministry of Works and Housing, the initiative seeks to provide new housing for those whose homes were destroyed by the floods.

National Disaster Management Organization (NADMO) data shows that over 5,200 households in 19 districts along the Volta River in the Volta, Eastern, Greater Accra, and Oti Regions were affected by the floods.

Minister of Works and Housing, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, stated that the entire resettlement project is expected to take six months. He said, “The construction of the resettlement homes is going to take some months and nothing less than about six months for us to make some significant headway in this exercise and we ask for everyone’s patience as we go through it. We are already starting about a hundred and our final validation will give us the backstock numbers.”
