NADMO Director appeals to Volta MPs, assemblies to collaborate with his outfit
The Volta Regional Director of the National Disaster Management Organization (NADMO), Mr Divine Bosson, has called for closer collaboration between his outfit, Municipal and District Assemblies as well as Members of Parliament (MPs) in the region to effectively manage disaster whenever it occurs.
According to Mr Bosson, most of the times, when disaster occurs, there is no collaboration between his office, MPs and Municipal and District assemblies. He noted that these institutions present relief items to victims without recourse to his outfit, which is not the best of practices, that must be adopted.
The Volta Regional Director of NADMO said this at the presentation of relief items to victims whose buildings were destroyed during a rainstorm last month at Kpenoe in the Ho Municipality.
He was grateful to the MP for Ho Central, Mr Benjamin Kpodo, who had earlier reroofed Kpenoe community school, which building was similarly destroyed during a rain storm. He, however, argued that that if the MP had collaborated with the Assembly and NADMO, it would have benefitted the people more than what he had done.
Mr. Bosson explained that committees which had representatives of the various assemblies, NADMO and MPs on them, had already been formed to assess the situation anytime disaster occurs and make recommendations as to what must be done.
He appealed to the MPs in the region to respect the work of these committees in the various assemblies instead of trying to do things on their own.
The Regional NADMO Director said the Ho Demonstration Junior High School was also ripped off in the same rainstorm but after assessment, it became clear that the structure of the building itself was weak and NADMO directed that re-engineering of the building be done before roofing.
The Acting Ho Municipal Chief Executive, Mr. Prosper Pii Bansah called on the beneficiary individuals and the community to ensure that the items had been used for the intended purpose stressing that the government would at all times respond to the needs of the people.
A Divisional Chief of Kpenoe, Togbe Akoto and a Senior Staff Midwife, Madam Agnes Amoafo at the Shia clinic who received the items on behalf of the victims and the management of the Clinic, thanked government for the gesture and promised that the items would be used for the intended purpose.Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Pinterest
