The Roads and Transport Committee of Parliament has called for the urgent demolition of buildings along the Aburi hills as a solution to recurring mudslides.

This development is as a result of a mudslide which induced flooding, displacing about 559 residents after four hours of rain yesterday (October 28).

Chairman of the Committee, Samuel Ayeh-Paye said the solution to the problem is to stop human activities on top of the hills.

He said the situation is awaiting national disaster and urged stakeholders including  National Security, local authorities, central government and chiefs and all Ghanaians to be concerned.

Mr. Ayeh-Paye said building retaining walls will not help if the structures on the hills are not demolished.

Similarly, the Director of Operations of the National Disaster Management Organisation (NADMO) Emmanuel Adu Ansah attributed the mudslide to a bad fence wall of a house located on the hills.
