Former Member of Parliament for the North Dayi Constituency, George Loh has attributed recurrent flood situations in Accra and parts of the country to the politicization of issues by various governments, and their failure to put measures in place to deal with the issue.

Speaking on TV3’s New Day on Saturday, the former MP noted that governments have failed to employ the right people with the required skills to properly plan and deal with flooding in the country.

“We are all sitting back and doing politics as usual; across board we are losing the fight against floods. As I speak to you, NADMO probably has employed 500 people and they cannot handle this thing because we are employing people who are not skilled in anything.

“He is the constituency youth organizer, so roll him up, so at the close of the day, we are piling up and bringing people who are not skilled to work. We need to look at these things, and attitude and history should guide us,” he added.

George Loh stated that Ghana as a country has refused to learn and take cues from past events of flooding in order to deal with the issue once and for all.
