Some social media users did not take lightly the reactions of the minister of roads and highways, Hon Amoako Atta to a situation he came across at North Legon on a road inspection tour.
The Minister had embarked on the road inspection tour to assess the true state of roads in Accra when he came across some group of building construction workers whose activities he believed was causing damage to the roads in the area.
"There is so much indiscipline, so much nonsense in our country" he yelled.
"This is a road network built with taxpayers money, you can not damage it because you are constructing a private property" he added.
He threatened to get the perpetrators arrested on a later date should the activity continue.
"I am giving you up to Friday, if you like continue with this and you will see what will happen here".
These reactions appear to not have sat well with some social media users. Whereas some applauded the move by the minister, some remained unsure whether the minister could really carry out the threats.
"He will talk saaa then they will show him the the property belongs to one party chairman then he will keep quiet". Kwame A Plus suggested
"He made the same loud noise at Airport nothing happened, the contractors are working on site after 1 year. It's not good for a property owner to destroy the main road in front of his property". Kwesi Tias Asiedu commented.
"For cameras nkoaa. The building at the airport residential area is almost done". Win Solomon mentioned.
Hon Amoako Atta in December 2019, stormed airport residential area and caused the arrest of some contractors whose construction activities had damaged parts of a road.
It still remains unclear the outcome of the swoop - whether or not the suspects were punished by law.
