As part of our sustainability drive, Engineers and Planners took to dredging the Odaw River, in Accra.

The dredging exercise was facilitated by the recent demolition of structures at Old Fadama, popularly known as Sodom and Gomorrah.

CEO of Engineers and Planners, Mr Ibrahim told press that it was the firm’s initiative to help dredge the river. “We decided to dredge the river to prove that we can do these jobs within in-house. We don’t have to always wait for foreigners to come and do such.”

He added that it was unjustifiable for people to lose their lives because of a silted river. This is in reference to the June 3 fatal flood, where tens of people died due to the overflown river.

The Minister of Local Government and Rural Development, Alhaji Collins Dauda who was impressed by the work done, confirmed that Engineers & Planners was doing the dredging at no cost to the Government.
