Prez Mahama cancels foreign travels to tackle pressing national issues

President John Dramani Mahama has cancelled scheduled foreign travels in order to deal with issues arising from the June 3rd flood and fire disasters and other pressing national issues.

The President was chosen as Special Guest of Honour at the 2015 World of Work Summit of the International Labour Organization (ILO) during its annual conference in Geneva.

President Mahama would also not be attending the 25th Session of the Assembly of Heads of State & Government of the African Union, which opens in Johannesburg on Sunday.

Some 152 Ghanaians have so far lost their lives in one of the nation’s worst disasters.

The twin disaster of flood and fire has also rendered many homeless while several others are treating life-threatening injuries in the hospital.

Government is still distributing relief items to displaced residents while efforts are being made at tackling the causes of Accra’s perennial flooding to prevent future disasters.
