John Dumelo to seek permit from Ayawaso to continue dredging drains


John Dumelo has proclaimed that he is prepared to look for consent from Ayawaso Municipal Assembly following the suspension of his work to dig depletes in the district.

The young politician had planned to dig a canal in the West Legon zone which frequently causes flooding.

He recruited a few excavators to embrace the activity, which started last Friday and was booked to take three days.

Notwithstanding, on Wednesday, he revealed that the get together had arranged him to end the activity until he is conceded endorsement. The proposal was that the gathering is attempting to keep him from accomplishing the work.


Addressing Accra-based Citi FM, he said he is prepared to look for consent from the city get together to keep digging the channels.

“I will write [to the Ayawaso West Assembly] to continue [dredging] because I need to save lives and my people’s property,” he said.

“It is the community that came to me and said, ‘John, can you dredge for us?’ So as soon as they came to me, I brought the excavators the following day to start the work, because I need to be there for the people and it is from the people’s request that I will act.

“So, if the people say I should come and do something for them I will do it. If I require certain permission which I know, I will go and ask for permission, not permission to go and dredge a gutter when lives are being lost and properties are being destroyed.

“I need to be there for the people.”he noted.
