Government to transform NADMO into service

The government is to transform the National Disaster Management Organisation (NADMO) into a service to make it more responsive to disaster management and prevention.

The new body, which will be called the National Disaster Management Service, will have structures at the lower level and work closely with assemblies on measures to mitigate the effects of disaster on people.

The Cabinet held a meeting at the Flagstaff House in Accra yesterday to discuss the content of the bill drafted for the establishment of the National Disaster Management Service.

NADMO is the governmental agency that is responsible for the management of disasters and other emergencies locally. It operates under the Ministry of the Interior.

NADMO was formed in 1996. It is backed by an Act of Parliament (Act 517).

Briefing journalists at the seat of government yesterday, the Minister of Information and Media Relations, Mr Mahama Ayariga, said the transformation of  NADMO into a service would strengthen institutional arrangements for the management of disasters.

Additionally, he said, it would help to address the current challenge of financing disaster management, as a financing regime would be put in place to deal with disasters and their effects.

"It is an attempt to restructure the NADMO to be more responsive and also focus more on prevention," he said.

Touching on other issues, Mr Ayariga said the Cabinet would also consider how to strengthen the anti-money laundering regime to check money laundering and the use of laundered money to finance drug trafficking and terrorist acts.

The Cabinet would also discuss the National Seed and the Fertiliser policy.

He said the Cabinet  would continue with discussions on the economy and measures at improving the economic situation to meet the critical targets of revenue mobilisation, expenditure management and financial administration reforms.

On the health situation of former South African President Nelson Mandela, Mr Ayariga said President Mahama was following the development.

He said the President joined the people of South Africa in praying for Mr Mandela in this critical time.
