Former National Security Coordinator, Brigadier General Nunoo Mensah (rtd) has indicated that the recent demolition of structures by the Accra Metropolitan Assembly (AMA) is not the solution to the perennial flooding in the city.

According to him, the filth that has engulfed the nation’s capital has not been dealt with.

“Pulling down the building is not the solution to the problem. There are many problems. I have travelled to many other countries outside Ghana and Accra is one of the areas where you see filth more than any other place and for many years, I have been a crusader on issues of the environment and so on and I believe that it is now time. We must take hard decisions to deal with some problems that we know exist,” Nunoo Mensah told Citi News.

City authorities have been demolishing fuel stations and other structures built on waterways following the June 3 floods and explosion at a GOIL fuel station at the Kwame Nkrumah Circle which claimed over 150 lives.

The Ministry of Environment, Science, Technology and Innovation and AMA have warned of more demolitions of unauthorized structures including fuel stations.
