This follows the displacement of inhabitants and destruction of property after tidal waves hit hard.

Addressing the chiefs and people of the various communities during a working visit, Francis Asenso-Boakye said the government is committed to addressing the perennial problem.

According to him, the construction of the project will commence this year.

β€œThe government is currently putting the financial arrangements together to construct a sea defense here for you people, and I am very hopeful that in the course of this year, we should start the construction of the project here.”
