Adakul Kodzobi (V/R), July 8, GNA – Days of
torrential rains have destroyed farms and property worth thousands of cedis in
the Adaklu District of the Volta Region.

Streams in Kodzobi, Vodze, Have and Dzakpo
overflowed their banks flooding farms and the communities.

Crops destroyed include corn, cassava,
groundnut, yams and vegetables.

Mr Newlove Nyatsikor, a beneficiary of the
government’s “Planting for Food and Jobs”, programme told the Ghana
News Agency that farmers could not go to their farms due to the floods.

He said they were worried about how to pay for
seeds and fertilizers supplied them under the programme, because they paid only
half the cost and were expected to pay the remaining half after harvesting the
crops.

In another development, the rains have washed
away some bridges in the District, cutting off some communities and
necessitating closure of schools for days.
