368 Unit Security Services Housing Project Ready At Tema New Town (Photos)

Inadequate housing has been a problem for our security Personnels in the country, thankfully the government of the day deserves praises from Ghanaians for commissioning a new Naval Barracks at the Eastern Naval Command, Tema for the servicemen.

The project is the second phase of the Security Services Housing Programme. It is fully gated and made up of 23 blocks with a total of 368 apartments. Out of the 23 blocks, 8 blocks are 3-bedroom flats and 15 blocks are 2-bedroom flats. The facility also comes with a multi-purpose sports facility and a playing ground for the personnel and their families.

This 368 unit Security Services Housing project is located at Tema New Town, being part of the former President John Dramani Mahama’s investment in housing which was started in 2014 following the completion of the first phase made up of 136 housing units at Community one in Tema.

The project was fully funded by the Government of Ghana and constructed by Messrs Amandi Holdings Group at a cost of Ghs 101 million so thankfully the project was not abandoned by Nana Akufo-Addo led government after meeting outstanding amount of Ghs 45 million for the completion of the project. Thanks to pressure on the Minister of Finance by the by the Minister of Defence as well as Minister of Work and Housing, goverment made payment and today the project is completed.

This is one of the most good news that plead my heart, for not seeing the project to be someone's own but rather saw it to for the people seems taxpayers money was used, when this attitude continue Ghana with work perfectly.

Let try to avoid politics in some of this projects where you will here; its JM legacy" others on the other side will say "its Nana Addo's legacy" so they are at it again political lenses and defenders.

Meanwhile the statement says Government of Ghana, so they do this and governments in order to aviod some of this nuisance decides to abandon projects started by previous administrations, then that also become an issue.

When governments tackles inherited projects and completes it and it becomes a disavdantage to him and his government for completing projects funded by the tax payers money.

Do we still have the conscience of blaming politician for neglecting inherited projects to start new ones they would never complete before leaving office? Or we should blame ourselves.

NDC will come and NPP will castigate them for abandoning Akuffo Addo's projects and the few ones they will complete, they will turn round to say these are " Nana Addo's projects'' what double standards are we as a people?
