    Ada Foah (G/A), July 21, GNA – The Ada East
    District Office of the National Disaster Management Organisation (NADMO) has
    embarked on programmes to educate the citizenry to prevent man-made and natural
    disasters. 

    Mr Ebenezer Teye Nartey, the Ada East District
    co-ordinator of the NADMO speaking to the Ghana News Agency in an interview at
    one of the programmes at Ada Foah in the Greater Accra Region said mostly
    relief items were temporal solutions to the ravages of disasters, and there was
    therefore the need for the people to work towards disaster management and
    prevention.

    He said in the last three months, one life was
    claimed and four persons injured, while a number of property worth GH¢7,000.00
    were lost as a result of man-made disasters.

    Mr Nartey said, according to a report, 35 per
    cent of natural disasters which occurred in the area were high tidal waves of
    the sea, rainstorm and the overflowing of the banks of the Volta River causing
    flooding in the area.

    He said people; especially fishermen living at
    disaster prone areas in the district had been advised to relocate to avoid the
    high tidal waves of the sea and that another looming development was the siting
    of fuel and gas filling stations at residential areas at Ada.

    According to him, most of the stations had
    been issued with permits from appropriate state agencies and making it
    difficult to deal with the owners.
