Expedite Compensation For Appiate Victims- Mahama Urges Akufo Addo

1 Min Read

Former President John Dramani Mahama is urging President Nana Akufo Addo to expedite action toward compensating victims of the Appiate disaster including those who have lost their source of livelihood.

“Listening to the representative of the victims of the disaster speak for their colleagues, it is clear that their livelihoods now are critical. They have lost everything, so the government must look at compensating those who lost relatives and properties. It is my belief that if the President insists on this concern of compensation now, it will definitely be done.”

“Government must not wait for Appiate explosion disaster victims to go to court for redress before the government pays the compensation. So, I will urge the President and the government officials to listen to the concerns of the Appiate victims. As much as they appreciate the government for the disaster response so far, their continued livelihoods are also important,“ he said.

The former President donated assorted food items, 500 bags of rice, 100 boxes of tin tomatoes, 100 boxes of canned fish, 100 mattresses and 5,000 cedis to the Appiate Relief Committee when he went there to interact with the people.
