Businessman and Politician, Paa Kwesi Ndoum, has called on President Mahama to show leadership in the handling of key national issues, yesterday’s floods being one.
In a Facebook post Thursday, Nduom, who operates a number of businesses across the country, recounted an experience that caused some of his investments to lose “valuable, expensive equipment and stock meant for sale.”
“I just want President Mahama to fix this problem. He is the President of the Republic of Ghana,” he said.
Below his statement
President John Dramani Mahama is reported to have said a few hours ago:
“We have to take some measures to avoid this in the future. Often when these measures are drastic, you have a lot of sympathy and pressure not to take these measures. But I think the time has come for us to move houses out of the waterways. The public should understand that it is necessary to take such measures to save everybody else,”
I agree. The fact that we have not been able to take “measures that are drastic” points to weak-kneed leadership. Good leaders solve problems, fix what is broken. And sympathy? What is sympathy when you are dead or your business is destroyed? I am ready to support concrete, specific, needed action to solve the problem. All I ask is for the President to lead from the front.
Following floods in Accra last year, some of my businesses lost valuable, expensive equipment and stock meant for sale. We built new drainage systems, built new walls, fortified our warehouse, etc. Once again, due to the recent rains, all our individual investment have gone to waste because the water way near us at Avenor burst its banks. If government does not fix the public water way, what we do as private people and businesses will not work.
I will not close any business down or lay off the workers. We will be back working.
I just want President Mahama to fix this problem. He is the President of the Republic of Ghana.
BREAKING NEWS: BoG takes over Unibank
