Veteran Ghanaian actress, Grace Omaboe, has revealed that she wasn’t compensated when Obra Spot was demolished.
The spot was located at Kwame Nkrumah Circle in Accra. It was demolished to pave way for an interchange constructed by the John Mahama government.
Obra Spot, as well as other structures in the area where demolished in 2013 when the interchange was commenced.
The idea behind the construction of the roundabout is to ease congestion in the vicinity.
The actress, who gained popularity from programmes such as ‘By The Fireside’ and the Akan drama series, ‘Obra’ claims that nothing has been given to her since the demolition took place.
She explained that the name of the spot was sourced from the television series in which she featured.
It was also referred to as Maame Dokono park, in apparent reference to the role the proprietor played in the TV series.
“They closed down ‘Obra’ spot before the construction of the interchange and there was no compensation.
I’m now fighting for compensation.”, she added.
