Minority Leader, Haruna Iddrisu has approached President Akufo-Addo to teach the Lands Minister to freeze the further offer of state lands in the Tamale Metropolis until an examination is finished to legitimize it.
He guaranteed that terrains having a place with establishments like wellbeing, detainment facilities, and instruction administrations were unloaded to party activists, who then, at that point, requested that the grounds be gotten back to the proper organizations.
The offer of state lands in the Metropolis has as of late started public shock, with the Tamale West Hospital's territories being the latest case.
"We stressing that whether it is Prison Service, whether it is Ghana Health Service, whether it's the Forestry Commission, whether it's the Ghana Education Service, that large number of grounds that were vested in organizations, this administration shouldn't continue further with their deal, without the simultaneous, acknowledgment and endorsement of those foundations," he added.
At a public interview to enlist the Minority Caucus' disappointment at the circumstance, Mr. Iddrisu lamented the what he sees as the conceit of the NPP government, which he said isn't thinking about the future extension of these state establishments, particularly the West Hospital that serves greater part of the general population nearby.
"So the West Hospital is currently only this OPD and the funeral home? Where could the chance for a future extension of it be? Where is the chance for these ladies and youngsters, tomorrow when they need medical care?
"See this spot, they are keen on selling it out to party activists. Today is off-base, wrong yesterday, and wrong tomorrow and we feel that there should be an inversion of those terrains back to the foundations. Concerning Nana Akoffo Addo, whether he regards the tenure of fidelity and of responsibility the truth will surface at some point," he said.
He scrutinized the Akufo-Addo drove government, that assuming these state lands had been sold randomly by his ancestors would there have been any land to be sold.
The Minority Leader said any magnanimous government would have turned state cottages like those around the West Hospital into convenience for well-being laborers as opposed to selling them out to party friends.
He claimed that terrains at the Tema Free Zones protected by the government with help from the World Bank in 2013 for the development of the Tema ICT park are likewise been sold, portraying it as a despicable demonstration that ought to be censured.
"I just got believable and blameless data that even Tema Free Zones, where the World Bank upheld the public authority in 2013, stroll back in 2009, we began what was known as the Tema ICT park." toward the beginning of today, my comprehension is that land is being made available for purchase or has previously been sold. That should be turned around," he said.
