Ghana’s president Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has consoled families of the 12 Ghanaians who lost their lives in two separate floods in the capital Accra.

Nana Akufo-Addo incurred the wrath of some Ghanaians on social media after tweeting to commiserate with France when the historic Notre Dame Cathedral went up in flames Monday but went mum over the tragedy in Ghana.

Twenty-four hours later, the president seems to have succumbed to pressure to commiserate with Ghanaians following the passing of 12 people through floods in two weeks.

He tweeted:

Military couple die

A Ghanaian married couple serving in the Ghana Armed Forces lost their lives in last Sunday’s rains and their child reported missing, disaster officials said.

The couple, Staff Sergeant Arthur Jabez and Warrant Officer (WO) Sarah Kuadzi, were on a military pickup which was swept away during the flood at suburban Ashaiman near the harbor city Tema.

Officials of the National Disaster Management Organisation (NADMO) discovered their bodies in an open drainage along the 19-kilometre Accra – Tema motorway in an area called Adjei Kojo.

Two other bodies were retrieved in a drainage bringing the total number of discovered dead bodies to seven after hours of downpour in the capital Accra.

A total of 12 persons have lost their lives over the past two weeks in flood.
