IMANI Vice President, Kofi Bentil IMANI Vice President, Kofi Bentil

The Vice President of IMANI Africa, Kofi Bentil has said the number of Ministerial appointees Akufo-Addo has made should see to it that problems affecting the country which includes annual flooding of major cities should seize.

In a facebook post he made on 20th April 2018 read, “If Accra flood this year’s, there’ll be hell to pay by those 110+998 people.”

Accra and some major cities have always flooded, almost as an annual ritual people look forward to with accompanying loss of lives and properties.

But IMANI’s Mr Bentil vowed there will be hell to pay by the over 1000 appointees of President Akufo-Addo should Accra flood this year.

But not only has Accra flooded again, but many lives including a medical doctor stationed at Ridge Hospital, a mother and a child among others, have been lost as a result of the flooding situation.

The Monday rains which started around 8:00 p.m. flooded many parts of Accra, leaving residents of the city in devastation as the flood waters recede Tuesday morning. The rains persisted till 3:00 a.m. Tuesday morning when it started to subside.

Active social media users took to Facebook and Twitter to give updates about the flooding situation at their locations as they struggle to get through to emergency service providers without success.
