GMA uprooting tree stumps in River Oti

Mr Thomas Alonzi, Director for the Ghana Maritime Authority (GMA) has said travelling on River Oti was now safe after the Authority started uprooting tree stumps in the River to prevent accidents.

 



Tree stumps are said to have caused several boat accidents on the Lake, with some being fatal.

The exercise is being done at Njari, Kudorkope, Tumpunja, Wolubu, and Ble Yi korpe communities in the Krachi East Municipality.

Mr Alonzi who inspected the ongoing exercise said the aim was to provide safe passage for boats on the Lake.

He said the Authority was determined to ensure that accidents on the Lake was reduced to the barest minimum and urged boat owners and operators to cooperate with the Authority to achieve its objective.

Mr Alonzi expressed satisfaction at the extent of work done and hopeful the contractors, Kete – Krachi Timber Recovery (KKTR) Limited would be on schedule.

Mr Patrick Jilima Chartey, Municipal Chief Executive (MCE) for Krachi East was grateful to the Authority for the exercise and expressed the hope that accidents on the River would be a thing of the past.

Mr Checki Akwasi, a leading boat operator in the area said people who travelled from Accra to Kete – Krachi, Chinderi, Banda, Buya and both Nanumba North and South mostly relied on boats or ferry to cross the River.

Some passengers who spoke to the GNA were happy that efforts were being made to ensure their safety and commended the Authority for the exercise.
