The District Planning Officer (DPO) of the Saboba Chreponi District, Mr Alexander Tetteh has expressed fear that farmers in the area stand to experience imminent loss following the distractive rainfall that hit the area.

He said farmlands in the area have been flooded and farmproduce such as maize, guinea corn and millet which are cultivated have been destroyed.

He noted that the cost of damages cannot be immediately known "as the dust would have to settle before the damage is assessed".

Speaking to, Mr Tetteh indicated that the districts revenue has also been affected due to the inability of market women to travel to the district on market days.

He noted that two major roads, Yendi and Paga and the Yendi Wapulu roads which are linked to Saboba have also been cut off making the area inaccessible to traders.

"Since the market women cannot make it on market days, revenue collectors cannot also collect the needed revenue for the district", he said.

Mr Tetteh pointed out that school children have also been affected and the means of communication has been disrupted except for the use of mobile phones.

He indicated that depending on the pattern of the rainfall it was hopeful that between October and November the road will become accessible.
