NADMO Boss, Hon Eric Nana Agyemang-Prempeh has advised communities living in the catchments of the Black and White Volta, the the Sisala and Kulpawn relocate to avoid being flooded by the Bagre Dam spillage.
He noted that following the recent downpour, there is a possibility that the dam could be opened anytime soon
Mr Agyeman Prempeh made the appeal when he paid a courtesy call on chiefs to appreciate efforts employed to sensitize residents of the effects of the spillage.
According to him, government is worried about the destruction the flood is causing in the northern part of the county.
“We as NADMO and government are worried because we are losing lives and people are harvesting their maize and other crops immaturely which is not a good thing because it might affect food security in the area and the country,” he said.
However, he gave the assurance that management of NADMO had put its monitoring team, together with officers and men of the 48 engineering of the Ghana Arm Forces, the marine unit and the police service on the ground to respond to any emergency situation that might arise as a result of the spillage.
On his part, the chief of Tolon, Major (Rtd) Sulemana Abubakari, thanked NADMO for recognizing their efforts and pledged that residents will continue to support in every bit.
He advised NADMO to continue to use dialogue during the discharge of its duties.
