A video that was shot by the founder of the All People's Congress, Dr Hassan Ayariga, has caused public outrage as it captured a massive housing project left to the mercy of the weather.
In the footage shared on Dr Ayariga's official Facebook handle, the 1502 first phase flats of the 5,000 housing units at Saglemi in the Ningo-Prampram District were seen being damaged on every side with overgrown trees.
In August 2012, as part of moves to alleviate the housing deficit in Ghana, Mahama signed a $280 million deal to construct 5,000 housing units at Saglemi, which was completed in the first phase.
