Mahama donates to tidal waves victims, calls on govt to do same
Former President John Mahama has asked the government to visit affected victims of the Keta tidal waves even if they have nothing to offer them.
Speaking during a visit to some affected communities, Mr. Mahama said, “even if you cannot provide them with anything, just a visit to show that you care about them is important.”
The former president went to the area visit the affected victims and to donate some relief items.
Mr. Mahama visited residents in the Anlo district, Keta, and Ketu South Municipalities who have been displaced.
He donated 1,000 bags of rice, 3,000 mattresses, 2,000 pieces of canned fish and tomatoes, boxes of Nido and Milo to affected persons after addressing supporters at the Keta Municipal Assembly.
He critized the government for not donating items to the victims.
“They [NADMO] don’t have the items, and I don’t blame them. It is the fault of the administration because they are not given the sufficient resources to be able to respond.”
The little that NADMO had, they have brought it, and that is why we have come to supplement whatever they have brought and to call on the government to show sympathy to the people here.”
