Ghanaians should learn how to swim to prevent continuous flooding – Cwesi Oteng

Gospel Musician and known sympathize of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) has Cwesi Oteng says Ghanaians should learn how to swim in ways to help anytime there are floods in the country.

According to him, it is expected for floods to happen in the country, especially the capital city, therefore there is need for citizens to learn how to swim.

His narration comes after several places within the capital city were on Saturday night flooded after a downpour that lasted several hours.

Floodwaters were seen running off major roads, cutting off vehicular movement.

Areas such as Kaneshie, Alajo, parts of Tema, Adabraka, were flooded, compelling some persons to evacuate their places of abode.

The Ghana Police Service issued a public safety warning to the public to avoid areas such as the Graphic Road towards Kaneshie and Agbogbloshie due to the high level of the Odaw River.

“We are experiencing flooding on some principal streets and highways within the Accra-Tema Metropolitan areas and beyond due to the downpour this evening. In view of this, we are advising members of the public to remain indoors.”

Responding to the situation, Cwesi Oteng expressed shock that Ghanaians especially those who reside in Accra have failed to take swimming lessons when they know they have to expect the floods.

Making his position on the floods known in a tweet, Cwesi Oteng said “So you know it floods every year in Accra and you still can’t swim?. It’s not funny”.
