The Executive Director of Ghana's Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Honorable Henry Kwabena Kokofu speaks on the demolition of buildings in Ghana to the host of a radio program titled "Kokrokoo", Kwame Sefa Kayi on Peace 104.3 FM.
According to Honorable Henry Kwabena Kokofu, Ghanaians mostly build houses on wetlands and reserves which is not the best option due to some unforeseen circumstances, and for that matter, such buildings are demolished.
Honorable Henry Kwabena Kokofu said the Ghanaians feel a rise in anger whenever their buildings are being demolished whiles they are aware that it is against the law to build houses where it is not supposed to be built.
Honorable Henry Kwabena Kokofu then said the laws governing the building of lands are in existence but it has been left to the authorities to enforce and before the enforcement can be done unless prevention takes place.
Honorable Henry Kwabena Kokofu said if the Ghanaians can be prevented from building houses in unauthorized places, the enforcement of the law will be easier.
