Speaking to Gnewsprime.com, a Driver who gave his name as Moses indicated that “we have been in the traffic for close to one hour, waiting for the flood waters to subside”.
He continued that “a number of passengers for the fear of the intensity of the flood had to use the drivers door of some vehicles to get down as their vehicles submerged”.
“Almost all the drainage systems in Accra are choked and that water is unable to drain freely, hence, the flooding anytime it rains in Accra”, Moses lamented.
