We Need Help – Ghana Meteorological Agency

Thursday, February 2, 2017 - 18:00

The Ghana Meteorological Agency has competent personnel to carry out its duties but lacks the resources to effectively discharge its mandate, Felicity Ahafianyo, a meteorologist, has said.
Her comment follows Tuesday night’s heavy rainstorm that blew away the roof of Ghana’s legislature with portions of the floor being soaked in rain. The leakages disrupted parliamentary business and forced the house to defer sitting. The rains soaked the carpet in the chamber and also messed up seats in the house. Speaking in an interview with host Chief Jerry Forson on Ghana Yensom on Accra100.5FM on Wednesday February 1, Ms Ahafianyo said: “I have been working there for almost 20 years and I will tell you that we are up and doing, but we need the working tools to work with. As we speak our amendment bill is even with parliament but up to now we have not heard anything about it.
