The Member of Parliament (MP) for Asokwa, Madam Patricia Appiagyei has tasked the Engineering department of the Municipality to summon owners of houses in waterways in the constituency to present their permits to the Assembly today.
This directive follows her unannounced Friday morning tour of the constituency to ascertain the level of damage caused by the floods on Thursday.
Huge damages caused by the floods on some structures in the Asokwa extension area especially, could not, but raise suspicion of wrong permits or no permits at all for developments in that area.

At the Agogo markets arena, Madam Appiagyei assured traders that before their relocation for a new structure to be built, their old structure would be put in good shape.
