He also added that the electronic data are also intact adding that there is no cause for alarm.
"The main offices that were affected include the basement, records, records annex and the digital capturing room. Most of the documents affected by the rain have been retrieved and dried up by the sun, adding that those that could not dry will be reprinted and replaced"
Mr. Dadson told the media that his men are ever ready to whenever they are called upon.
"This has not disrupted any of our work. As a matter of fact, we have restored lights to all the afffected offices and we are ready and will be at your service anytime we are called upon to work"
On his part, the Deputy Minister for Lands and Natural Resources, responsible for Lands and Forestry, Benito Owusu-Bio told Journalists after his inspection that all documents at the Lands Commission are safe and intact.
He said, "Yes, it is true the rain got into the building from the construction site nextdoor but upon inspection on arrival to verify the reports, nothing has been destroyed as most documents were safely placed on shelfs above floor level"
He added that he is confident that the destroyed documents will be replaced as promised.
Hon. Benito promised that he will ensure no document is kept on the floor.
"We see your efforts and we appreciate it, Keep up the good work"
