"Accra Northerners" raise money for flood victims 10/2/2007
Northerners resident in Accra at a crisis meeting on Sunday to discuss the flood situation in the three northern regions of Ghana, succeeded in raising ¢153 million to support distressed compatriots.

A total of ¢100 million out of the amount was contributed by Members of Parliament from the three northern regions from all the political parties.

The meeting, held at the GBC Club House, also agreed on constituting three committees of 10 citizens from each of the three regions to oversee the reconstruction of the three regions.

The groups are to hold a joint meeting today in Accra.

The Sunday meeting also identified and discussed areas that require urgent attention and how to help flood victims in the short-term and a more comprehensive long-term plan.

The chairman for the function, Dr. H. A. Wemah, appealed to northerners to rise up to the situation and contribute materially and financially towards the welfare of the flood victims.

He stressed that the meeting was neither political, tribal nor religious but one to help northerners.
