In a display of philanthropy, Mr. Kofi Koranteng, the Presidential hopeful of the New Vision Movement, has come forward to support the victims affected by the recent spillage from the Akosombo Dam in Ghana.
Joining hands with Executives of New Vision Movement and other notable Ghanaians both home and Abroad, Mr. Koranteng made a significant contribution to those impacted by this unfortunate incident.
The gracious donation was presented to the affected individuals in Mepe, Sogakope, and another township within the Volta Region.
The relief items, which included bags of rice, bags of maize, bags of cassava and corn dough, boxes of mosquito coils, toiletries, and a truckload of mineral water, were distributed among the displaced residents.
This initiative is part of Mr. Koranteng and his executives commitment to providing essential support to those affected by the dam spillage.
Following the donation, Mr. Koranteng, who serves as the founder and leader of the New Vision Movement, expressed his deep empathy for the suffering of the affected individuals.
He acknowledged the severe impact that the dam spillage has had on the lives and livelihoods of the communities affected, emphasizing the urgency of providing assistance.
Mr. Koranteng also called on the local authorities and citizens to hold both past and present governments accountable for the disaster, asserting that it could have been prevented with proper action.
He encouraged Torgbe Mankralo to rally the people of the Volta Region to consider voting for the New Vision Movement, emphasizing his dedication to the country’s well-being.
Furthermore, Mr. Koranteng urged the people of the Volta Region to consider a political alternative that prioritizes the welfare of its citizens over the destruction of properties and livelihoods.
He emphasized the challenging road to recovery for the displaced individuals and stressed the importance of vigilance and accountability among the region’s leaders and residents.
Assuring the Chiefs and Elders of his commitment, Mr. Koranteng promised to address the situation effectively if given the opportunity.
He highlighted the disparity between the availability of funds for grand projects like a new Bank of Ghana building and a cathedral, compared to the inadequacy of resources for essential infrastructure like reservoirs to protect people’s properties.
He called for a collective memory of government actions, both past and present, and their implications.
In response, Torgbe Korsi Nego VI, the Mankralo of Mepe, expressed gratitude on behalf of the affected individuals and commended Mr. Kofi Koranteng for his generous gesture.
