- A woman, whose name is Veronica Awuah, has challenged the decision to evict traders around the residence of President Akufo-Addo
- According to her, the land on which they settled belongs to her family
- She is therefore demanding details of the deal to resettle the traders
In a rather unexpected twist, a visibly upset woman named Veronica Awuah, has challenged the decision to relocate traders and artisans who have settled around the Nima residence of President Akufo-Addo.
Veronica claims that the parcel of land being occupied by the traders is a property of her family.
She went ahead to produce documents covering the land, including indentures for the piece of land in question.

In a report by www.3news.com, she claimed that the land belonged to her late grandmother, Adelaide Otwiwa Newman.
In that respect, she proceeded to demand details on the eviction of the occupants, especially contracts signed.
Veronica argued that though the land was leased to a private developer 19 years ago for a period of 50 years, she still has a vested interest in it and accordingly ought to have been consulted in the decision by the national security to take over the said property.
She explained that though the family is not against the eviction of the occupants, they are demanding full disclosure of any deal that has been reached between the developer and Flagstaff House over the land.
National Security officials have reportedly given the traders till March 25, 2018 to vacate the area, as it has been declared a security zone following the election of Nana Akufo-Addo as the President of Ghana in December 2017.
In line with that, the affected traders and artisans have begun receiving cash compensation of between GHc3,000 and GHc6,000.
