- The AMA has demanded for the building permit of the Office of the Special Prosecutor
- This implies that all construction works have come to a halt at the office
- The MCE for Accra, Nii Adjei Sowah, has explained that it is in line with normal regulatory checks
YEN.com.gh understands that the Accra Metropolitan Assembly (AMA) has ordered an immediate halt of all construction activities on the office of the Special Prosecutor, Martin Amidu.
This comes after it was detected that no permit has been secured for the construction of the building to accommodate Amidu and his staff.
The relatively bigger office space allocated to the Office of the Special Prosecutor (OSP) in October 2018, has been marked with the ‘Stop work and produce permit’ inscription by officials of the AMA, a situation that hampers the ongoing construction of a fence wall.
As a result, ongoing renovation works inside the building have also been affected, a situation that has created an inconvenience.
According to a report by Citinewsroom.com, the instruction for the permit to be produced, was issued on Wednesday, January 16, 2019.
It is however unclear what kind of paperwork had been done on the building before it was released to the OSP.
When contacted, the Metropolitan Chief Executive of Accra, Nii Adjei Sowah, said that the OSP had to provide his office with their permits before they would be allowed to continue with the construction.
The Special Prosecutor, Martin Amidu, is meanwhile unhappy with how a contractor was selected, allegedly from the office of the Chief of Staff, to build a fence wall without due process.
As a result, he recently ordered the arrest of persons who were working on the project.
He has also vowed to ensure that the right thing is done in terms of procurement processes in order not to put his office in trouble.
