He indicated that the project, which would come at no cost to residents, would be executed together with ministries of lands and natural resources, inner city and zongo development.

He made this known at a meet-the-press engagement on the policies, plans, programmes and projects executed by the ministry of works and housing

Atta Akyea reiterated government’s plan to build an ultra-modern and resilient housing project similar to ‘world class’ apartment edifices in the country adding that the renovation would give “meaning and beauty to the president’s vision".

“The transformation of approximately 1,039 acres of prime land, which Nima and Maamobi occupy, will give meaning and beauty to the President’s vision of Inner City and Zongo Development,” he noted.

On notions that the residents will forcibly be evacuated from their homes, the minister insisted that government had no plans of “dislodging residents but create a better environment for them so that the land space where they are will be released to the developer”.

The minister noted that, the aforementioned area, known to be a slum, would be a world-class residential enclave close to Jubilee House, the seat of government once the area is transformed.
