Anlo Traditional Council worried as sea eats away coastal towns

The Anlo Traditional Council in the Volta Region has charged the government to scale-up efforts to protect coastal towns, especially Keta, and its environs from being washed away by the sea.

According to them, the move will reduce the growing destruction caused by tidal waves in the area.

The spokesperson for the Council, Togbe Agbetadua Kumassah, made the request in an interview with Adom News during the 60th annual HogbetsotsoZa celebration.
