“The erosion is a pity for us of course, but it’s a pity for a lo of people who lost their houses, and so we decided to do something about it. We have been investing over GHC400, 000 in erosion protection…we are doing our best to stop the erosion”, he said.
He also stressed what a key role education plays in improving the fates of deprived communities as the Ada islands. It is for this reason, he says, that his company is determined to support as much as possible: “Without schooling, without education, we are going nowhere, and I strongly believe in that. With isolated communities like the islands, it’s even more important to support them”, he further submitted.
