The residents attributed the floods mainly to the slow pace of a bridge construction which has been neglected by the contractor.

Following the reportage which went viral, the contractor on the project went back to work and has been sighted working to finish the bridge on time.

The mother of a week old baby who was affected by the flood and complained bitterly in our initial reportage was the first person to be visited when the Member of Parliament(MP) of the area, Gifty Tina Naa Ayele Mensah visited the construction bridge.

She also donated some relief items and an undisclosed amount of cash to her.

Madam Akosua Danso after receiving the cash expressed gratitude to for a good work done.

The residents were also full of praise for this website as they claimed that several complains to the authorities to get the bridge constructed and the drains dredged had fallen on deaf ears.

They confessed that the Assembly and the MP acted swiftly after reading the contents on this website.

“We thank for the good work…we were just astonished at the swift nature of the response to our plight..,now you can see, the contractor is back on site and we can now heave a sigh of relief” a resident told our reporter, Odehye Kwaku Asiedu.

The MP assured the residents that she will ensure that the bridge and the drains are dredged to prevent future floods.

She further called on the MCE, Patrick Kumor to demolish all buildings on the waterways to enable the contractor to execute the work effectively.
