According to the AMA boss, if drastic measures are not put in place to curb the trend, parts of the region will soon be submerged.
The Metropolitan Chief Executive, Accra Metropolitan Authority (AMA), Mohammed Adjei Sowah has threatened to demolish structures along waterways to avert perennial flooding.
According to him, if drastic measures are not put in place to curb the trend, parts of the region will soon be submerged.
He said the AMA will construct and desilt major drains in order to deal with the perennial floods.
Mohammed Adjei Sowah, speaking to Accra-based Citi FM said the AMA would also embark on some sensitisation in flood-prone areas.
He said "There are two plans. One is to, first of all, see how we mitigate the effects. If we find that the location is not the best or suitable for habitation, certainly, we have to pull done the structures. That is the first option."
The Ministry of Works and Housing has rolled out temporary measures to minimise the impact of flooding ahead of the rainy season.
As part of the measures, processes are almost complete for the dredging and de-silting of all drains to ensure free flow of rainwater before the rains start.
