This comes barely a week after Alfred Oko Vanderpuije, the Mayor of Accra, announced that 45 percent of work had been done by way of dredging major drains in the city.

The rains which began Thursday dawn, is likely to persist for a while, the Ghana Meteorological Agency has warned.

A caution message being circulated by Communications minister, Dr. Edward Omane Boamah said: “The Ghana Meteorological Agency has advised that the rains will continue for a while longer; hence the general public should avoid fast flowing water, move from lower ground to higher places if need be and call emergency lines- including 112 should the need arise”.
