Provide immediate support to victims of Bagre Dam spillage – NDC
Mr Salisu Be-Awuribe, the Northern Regional Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), has appealed to government to take the needed steps and provide relief support to the affected victims of the Bagre Dam spillage.
He said many are disappointed in government’s delay at responding to the plight of the people.
Mr Be-Awuribe made the appeal on Monday at the press conference organised by the newly elected regional executive committee of the Party.
The press conference was aimed at expressing the Party’s concern at the Bagre Dam spillage, which claimed seven lives and destroyed thousands of acres of farmland and thereby affecting the livelihoods of over 100,000 people.
He said considering the intensity of the destruction caused by the flood, the authorities are expected to promptly come to the aid of victims with the needed support that would alleviate their plight.
Mr Be-Awuribe expressed sympathy to the families of the victims along the flood plains of the White Volta River.
