on

Young man identified as Abass Seidu who is the Mempeasem polling station branch of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) was found dead in his room

The NDc’s polling station’s youth organizer at Mempeasem in the Essikado-Ketan constituency of the Western Region was found dead in his room last Thursday.

Abass Seidu was found dead in his room after neighbours realized that some unpleasant smell was coming from the direction of Seidu’s room at Mempeasem.

A former youth organizer of Essikado-Ketan constituency of the NDC, Kofi Wayoe confirmed the sad incident.

He explained that Abass was believed to have travelled for four days but the family did not know where he went.

He indicated that sometimes the deceased will travel outside the area without informing the family where he was going.

The reason we could not realize earlier that Abass had died was because Abass always travelled without notifying anybody including his family members

So when we did not see him or hear from him for four days, we thought he had travelled as usual,” he noted

He said when some residents forced the door open after smelling the stench coming from the deceased room, they saw the lifeless body of Abass Seidu lying in a supine position with no bruises on his body.

He said since Abass, was a Muslim he was buried on the day the body was found- Thursday, June 3, 2021. He was 35.

Meanwhile, the case has been reported to the Essikado-Ketan Police who are investigating to unravel the circumstances under which Abass Seidu died.

V/R : Dzodze Youth Club petitions Government over water crises

Published

on

Dzodze ,a town widely known for her abundant production of Palm oil,happens to be the capital of the Ketu Norh Municipal in the Volta Region.

 

In recent times, access to potable water has been a headache for residence, prior to this,the most outspoken Youth Club called “Dzodze Youth Club” led by Mr King Nobert Akpablie has released a press address to Petition the government.

Excerpt of the release reads ;

MR PRESIDENT, DZODZE NEEDS WATER

The youth of Dzodze and entire residents have observed with worry, how Government and Community Water and Sanitation Authority(CWSA) are handling the water crisis in the Municipal Capital

It would be recalled that government during the Covid-19 pandemic introduced an intervention for access to water free of charge to consumers across the country. This came with a promise to re-imburse service providers with funds spent in supplying the uninterrupted water.

Dzodze Water Board(DWB) under the supervision of Community Water and Sanitation Authority(CWSA) provided the water to residents free of charges throughout the period of intervention. The amount submitted by the Board in the first quarter was Five Hundred Thousand Ghana Cedis (GHC500,000). After a validation, the CSWA said they could only pay an amount of Four Hundred and Twenty-Five Thousand cedis (GHc425,000). The said validated amount is yet to be paid.

Several efforts have since been made by the Board and the Dzodze Urban Council to retrieve the money but all to no avail. The delay in payment have affected production of water in the area. Most of the pumps at the water stations have broken down because there were no cash to carry out periodic maintenances. They needed to be replaced. The Board can no longer afford to even treat the little amount of water they generate to manage the crisis.

Interestingly, we reliably observed that payments were made to Water Bourds of adjoining towns.

We, as youth group are not only worried about the seeming discrimination by government but also the brunt of the crisis on the ordinary residents. It is difficult to access portable water in town. The only stream called Kplikpa, from which the people draw water has now been taken over by cattle. On daily basis, children and women go on fruitless search for water. Water is needed to manage activities in homes, run hospitals, schools, hotels, offices and other public places. But a harvest for a drop of water in Dzodze comes with challenges. This is a ticking time bomb that could explode to health outbreaks and socio-economic instability in the area.

Our worry heightens when we cannot see any clear commitment from government towards payments of its debts owed the Board. By this release, we are reminding government of her commitments towards welfare of our people, particularly during the Covid-19 pandemic and her promises to cushion ordinary citizens.

We are also calling on CSWA to facilitate the retrieval of the locked up funds needed to revamp our grounded water system. We may be forced to take unconventional means to retrieve our funds.

Finally, we are encouraging all stakeholders and prominent citizens to intervene in this crisis. Dzodze needs water, Dzodze needs help

 

Thank you.

Green Ghana: Bole becomes green under the NHIA

Published

on

The Bole District Branch of the National Health Insurance Authority (NHIA) has today Friday June 11, 2021 planted sixty (60) trees as part of the National tree planting exercise led by the President of Ghana.

The Green Ghana project, which is a Ministry of Lands and Natural Resources initiative spearheaded by sector Minister Samuel Abu Jinapor, aimed to plant five million trees in a single day.

The Bole branch of the National Health Insurance Authority planted 60 various types of tree species on the premises of the NHIA led by the scheme Manager Mr. Mohammed Suraj-Deen and his staff.

Mr. Suraj-Deen, speaking to the media following a brief event to plant seedlings at the NHIS complex, noted that “in line with the President’s directive that government institutions and individuals should assist in greening Ghana, we have gone ahead to implement our own version of greening Ghana on the NHIS compound”.

“We planted trees which included acacias, thick and others. Already, we have started our own afforestation before the coming of greening Ghana and we are going to continue NOT only to plant trees but to take good care of them until they become matured and needs no care” Syrah-Deen added.

Earlier in June, 2021, President Akufo-Addo called on Ghanaians to plant more trees to preserve the country’s forest cover and the environment.

The President stressed that “We cannot sit by and watch as our trees, flora and fauna are wiped out. Our very existence is tied directly to the survival of trees. Without the oxygen produced by trees, we cannot survive as humans.

“Lend your support to the Ministry of Lands and Natural Resources as it executes this ambitious national assignment. I will be planting a tree and I expect you too to plant one. Let us make Ghana green.

Three children are battling for their lives with their parents dead in a fire outbreak at Adjei Kojo in the Tema West Constituency of the Greater Accra Region.

The children include three boys and one girl with the girl the only surviving one though she was scald.

An electrical fault is suspected to have caused the incident which happened around 2:00 am while they were asleep.

Eyewitnesses and rescuers who confirmed the incident to Adom news said they heard loud screams in the middle of the night.

They rushed to the scene only to discover the house was on fire and without hesitation, rushed to rescue the family of five.

“The place was dark so we had to use torch lights to find them and we managed to rescue the children first before the parents but all of them were in critical condition [when we found them],” one of the rescuers said.

Another was hopeful the parents would have stayed alive but for the delay in medical care.

“We first took them to Tema General hospital then to Ridge but we were told there was no accident unit so we had to go to Korle Bu and it was around 5:00 am when we finally got there,” he narrated.
