The sod-cutting ceremony was attended by the MP for North Tongu, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, as well as local Chiefs and Queen mothers from the Mepe community.
He added that they are also working to extend similar support to those affected by the dam spillage in the Oti Region and the Northern Regions.
The Chiefs expressed their gratitude to Ibrahim Mahama and his team for fulfilling the promise made during the presentation of relief items.
