The Assembly members of the Ashaiman Municipality have appealed to President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to halt the sale of a parcel of land at Community ‘21’ at Afariwa, near Ashaiman.
They called for immediate investigations to ascertain the persons behind the sale of the land and their motive.
Mr Braimah Abdulai, the Presiding Member of the Assembly made the appeal in an interview with the Ghana News Agency after he had led the 25-member Assembly to visit the land.
He said the Tema Traditional Council entrusted the land to the Tema Development Corporation (TDC) in 1952 to keep and manage it on their behalf.
TDC, he said then released the land to the Free Zones to build quarters for its workers, but that did not happen for strange reasons.
“It is strange to hear recently that the land has been sold to a private developer at a time the Assembly is looking for land to construct a market for the traders,” he said.
The Presiding Member said they would resist the “ugly sale” and that they would mobilise their constituents to protest all the way to the presidency to ensure that the “disgusting sale was stopped.”
