The Member of Parliament for Sagnarigu, A.B.A. Fuseini has condemned the Accra Metropolitan Assembly (AMA) for the recent demolition exercise carried out at Old Fadama.

The AMA demolished unauthorised structures at the slum area leaving many squatters homeless in the wake of the novel coronavirus pandemic despite pleas for the authorities to suspend the exercise until after the pandemic or the current lockdown is lifted.

Reacting to this development, Mr Fuseini said: “I can tell you that as soon as the opportunity comes in Parliament, we are going to call on the relevant ministers; Minister for Local Government or the Minister for Works and Housing or other ministries, to come to Parliament and answer.”

“If there are opportunities, some of us will put statements on the Floor of the House and the matters arising because it encompasses not just the demolition but the consequences and the aftermath of the demolition,” he told Accra-based CITI FM.

The demolition was to pave way for the dredging of the Korle Lagoon ahead of the rainy season.
