It was a lively discussion today, Thursday, August 5, 2021 as Sammy Gyamfi and Kweku Baako joined Dr. Randy Abbey on Metro TV’s ‘Good Morning Ghana’. One of the issues discussed was brouhaha over the Saglemi housing project. This has become an issue after the Attorney General, Godfred Dame started prosecution processes against Collins Dauda and other NDC officials for mismanagement
According to Sammy Gyamfi, because additional costs were added to the project it was no longer feasible for 5000 housing units to be built. He said in the initial plan there was no mention of sewage, drainage, roads etc. He said the addition meant that the cost of the housing will go up and this was not a matter of squandering of funds. Sammy added that this was not a matter of misappropriation but witch-hunting.
“We cannot allow certain people to distort the facts. The entire land size for the entire housing was 2172 acres of land. Everyone should listen. Each phase of the 4 phases will take 500 acres. So how come phase 1 alone should be 5000 houses? So you would have built all 5000 on 500 acres and used the rest to cook ampesi? What will you use the rest of the 1500 acres of land for? For ampesi? Sammy queried
Kweku Baako was arguing that the number of units to be built on the first phase was not stated and so was amazed that Sammy Gyamfi was saying that the units all 5000 could not be built during the first phase. Kweku Baako explained that matters should be left in the hands of the prosecution team and whoever was found guilty charged.
