The Tema West Municipal Assembly has embarked on a demolition exercise to clear some structures built on waterways at Lashibi.
The demolition follows the visit of the Greater Accra Regional Minister, Mr. Henry Quartey, announcing the intended demolition exercise.
Speaking to the media during the demolition, the Municipal Engineer of the Tema West Municipal Assembly, Mr. Vincent Blah Quarshie, said “the rainy season is almost here… to us in Tema West, it was welcoming for the Regional Minister to come and wake us up”.
“We already had an action plan to demolish buildings on waterways especially as the rainy season beckons”, Mr. Quarshie observed.
He indicated that the demolition will pave way for the contractor working on the bridge in the area for the project to commence.
Although he sympathised with the affected persons whose investments have gone down the drain he said they are to be blamed for building on waterways.
