NADMO considers demolishing hilltop homes at Aburi, McCarthy Hills

The Director General of the National Disaster Management Organisation (NADMO), Eric Nana Agyemang Prempeh, says his outfit is considering moves to demolish some hilltop homes at the Aburi and McCarthy Hills in order to avert a landslide.

According to him, NADMO is concerned that settlements on the Aburi and McCarthy Hills have led to the destruction of some vegetative cover in those areas.

“Because we have same mountains and others, I am just looking at Aburi, I am just looking at Weija, I am just looking at McCarthy Hills and other places and some parts of the Western Region,” Mr Prempeh said in an interview on Joy FM.

Mr Prempeh, who along with other officials of NADMO, were on the grounds in Sierra Leone as part of the relief effort, said Ghana has a lot to learn from the sad experience of Sierra Leone.

Sierra Leone’s mudslide killed at least 499 people, with more than 600 still missing

 

“We have learnt a lot of things. We are going to meet with Works and Housing, the Meteorological Services Department… to stop people from building on those hills. If we have to demolish some houses, we need to do it”.
