Keta for the past decades has suffered from activity of high tidal waves, which destroyed physical structures, lives and other properties.

The residents are currently living in fear and are asking government to address the situation in time to prevent greater havoc.

Hon. Bedzrah is also calling on government to expand the Keta Sea Defence Project to control the release of this periodic floodwaters from the mainlands into the Atlantic Ocean to protect lives and properties and to avert the increasing land lost.

The Keta Sea Defence Project (KSDP) which was started during the NDC government to control the release of periodic flood waters from the areas surrounding the Keta Lagoon has stalled for some years now.

According to the MP, this current situation should serve as a wake up call to government for works on the sea defense project to continue and also for them to honor their promise to construct a seaport for the people of Keta to boost the socio-economic activities in the area.
