The Greater Accra Regional Minister, Hon Henry Quartey is on the task to make Accra work again. This morning, he together with the Municipal Chief Executive of Ledzekuku, Hon. Evelyn Twum - Gyamerah inspected a demolishing ongoing in the municipality. At the Lapaz new market, residents had constructed some structures under high tension poles which is not safe and can cause lots of havoc.
The eviction made in this area is to make the area accessible in times of emergency. Some of the squatters who have their structures in the area, plead with the leaders to extend their eviction date since it was too close for them. The eviction date was less than a month and the squatters said it is not enough for them to find a new location.
One of the squatters Nana Kojo had a heated argument with the regional minister saying the government has not provided any job for them to cater for themselves so they cannot just come and tell them to leave. Nana Kojo who said he is 35 years old and has 7 children mentioned that how does the government expect them to fend for themselves.
With this, the regional minister commanded him to shut up if not he will cause his arrest because he has no right to speak that way. Hon Quartey added that they need to be proactive because should an accident occur due to the location of the structures, Ghanaians and the media wi blame the authorities.
Hon. Quartey again joined the executives of Okaikwe North to engage in surveillance to deal with indiscriminate dumping of refuse. The MCE for the area, Hon Nii Boye Laryea said three men have been arrested at Achimota - Neoplan after dumping refuse indiscriminately.
Hon. Laryea detailed that there was a media post concerning rubbish being dumped in that area. He organized a clean up exercise and cleared all the refuse from there. Afterwards there they posted signage to warn persons from dumping refuse there. However, these men dumped wheelbarrows full of refuse at the site. They were caught by a task force and arrested.
