The government would continue to provide the necessary material and financial resources to save lives and properties in the coastal areas.
The Minister for Works and Housing, Mr Francis Asenso-Boakye, who disclosed this when he paid a working visit to Ketu South, said protecting the coastal communities against tidal waves was a priority on the government’s agenda.
“The protection of coastal areas from tidal waves and the destruction of properties, loss of lives and livelihood is one of the key activities of the Ministry,” he added
He, therefore, assured Chiefs and the people of the Ketu South that the second phase of the Blekusu Sea Defense project would be completed by the end of 2021.
He said the second phase of the Blekusu Sea Defence is an eight-kilometre extension of the first phase. Its completion would address the tidal waves the people of Salakope Amutinu were facing.
On his part, the Makorsor (Paramount Chief) of Somé Traditional Area in the Ketu South Municipality, Torgbiga Adamah III said the second phase of the project was long overdue and the people of the area are looking forward to its commencement to protect lives and properties.
