Effia-Nkwanta(W/R), April 17, GNA — Real estate developers in the Sekondi-Takoradi Metropolis have encroached on the land belonging to the Effia-Nkwanta Regional Hospital and have erected pillars on it in readiness for development.

The Administrator of the Hospital, Mr.  Asare- Bediako Micah told the GNA in an interview on Monday that investigations had revealed that the site plan at the Town and Country Planning Department is different from the one at the Lands Commission which had raised a lot of questions about the site plan.

He said the developers had erected pillars on the land at the back of the Sekondi Nursing and Midwifery Training College, which is within the premises of the hospital.

Mr. Bediako-Micah said management of the hospital had directed the hospital’s security personnel to remove the pillars to deter any potential developer, adding that that portion of the land is meant for future expansion.

He cautioned that the hospital authorities would not sit aloof for anyone to take over the land and would therefore use every legal means to protect their property.

Mr Bediako-Micah said that anyone who buys any portion of the land risked losing his or her money since they would not allow him or her to develop it.

When asked whether he had any idea about the person selling the land to developers, Mr. Bediako-Micah said some time past two men from the Fijai Traditional Council approached the hospital authorities and requested that they release some portion of the hospital land to them since the government had not paid any compensation to them.

The administrator said the management of the hospital told them to seek audience with the government since the land they had requested for belonged to the hospital therefore they were not prepared to release it to anyone.

He said that since that time they had not heard from them until recently they noticed some developers had encroached on the said land with pillars.
