AKOSOMBO DAM SPILLAGE: LONG-TERM RELIEF FOR VICTIMS WILL BE CONSIDERED IN 2024 BUDGET – Ofori Atta

Finance Minister Ken Ofori-Atta has announced that long-term relief measures for the victims of the Akosombo Dam spillage will be taken into consideration during the formulation of the 2024 budget.

Speaking to journalists after touring affected communities on Friday, Mr Ofori-Atta indicated that though the government had made some relief items available for victims, the government was going to continue to do more and also capture it in next year’s budget.

“We have mobilized a few things that we would like to share but I think we are also in the budget season and therefore it will not just be numbers that we are working on but true feelings in the field and therefore the need to look at these social interventions in a real way. We will certainly give this an expression immediately and
also in the budget,” he stated.

Mr Ofori-Atta also used the opportunity to laud Citi FM/Citi TV for its swift and compassionate response in assisting the victims of the Akosombo Dam spillage.

He expressed his deep appreciation for the significant role played by both the Managing Director of Citi FM/Citi TV, Samuel Atta Mensah, and General Manager of Citi TV/Citi FM, Bernard Avle, in providing vital support to the communities affected by the spillage.

“I have got two friends at Citi FM, Sammens and Bernard, who have also put their spirit into this. So we as a country are showing a certain unity which is important if we are to move forward in these very difficult circumstances,” Mr Ofori Atta said.
