Leader of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Dramani Mahama, has unveiled a plan to improve water access in Accra due to recent shortages caused by the city’s growing population.

Speaking at his Building Ghana Tour at the regional house of chiefs, Mahama stressed the importance of taking proactive steps to deal with the urgent water problem.

Highlighting the challenges faced by Accra because of rapid urbanization, Mahama emphasized the necessity of planning ahead to manage water resources.

He pointed out the efforts made during Professor Mills’ and his own administrations to increase water capacity but noted a lack of progress in recent years.

Mahama outlined his strategy for addressing the water crisis, pledging to prioritize expanding water supply when he assumes office.

He highlighted the absence of such expansion in Accra’s water supply over the past eight years.

“Between Professor Mills’ time and my time, we added 40 million gallons of water to Accra’s water supply. In the last eight years, there has not been a single drop expansion in Accra’s water supply. So why do you expect that the water will be enough? This is a city that is growing. And so after we added 40 million gallons, at least in eight years, you should have added another 20 million gallons. We have started planning ahead already that when we come into office, we are going to increase the water supply to Accra.”
