Dzifa Gomashie, a member of parliament for Ketu South and a member of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), has criticized President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo for his remarks regarding the spill from the Akosombo Dam.
The lawmaker claimed, in an interview with Class FM in Accra, that the President had degraded the people of the area rather than provided any workable answers to the calamity.
“His Excellency, the president, should be ashamed of himself because if you go into your archives, you’ll see that from 2021, the three MPs along the coast of the Volta Region — my good self, the MP for Keta, Hon Kwame Dzudzoli Gakpey and the MP for Anlo, Hon Richard Kwami Sefe, called on the president many times to come to the aid of our people who were inundated with the tidal waves that had hit our communities”.
“In my particular case, in one year, the tidal waves hit me three times” , she said. She added, “On none of those occasions did the president speak about it, tweet about it, or think about it” .
