Member of Parliament for Madina Constituency, Abu-Bakar Saddique Boniface, says it is important that all drainage systems in the country be covered, considering the danger open drains poses.

Mr Abubakar made this statement in an interview with GhanaWeb when he visited the family of a nine-year-old boy who drowned in a drain after it rained on Sunday, in his constituency.

“All drains must be covered, storm drains must be covered. Even in the middle of the road, you can create a storm drain and cover it. Even in advanced countries they maximize the land. So you see that when it rains, you don’t see water running all over the street. Everything goes down.” He explained.

According to him, with the constant increase in the population of the country, it is more important that the utilisation of available land is done efficiently and effectively.

The MP who also serves on the Works and Housing Committe, indicated that recommendations for the construction of covered drains have been tabled before the ministry and is very hopeful that they will be implemented very soon.

“I am on the Works and Housing Committee in Parliament and we have advised…for which I am sure that in the future, drains that will be constructed within the communities will be covered.” He said.
