- An NDC MP is in tears over demolition of his storey building
- He says he has been targeted in the demolition exercise
The National Democratic Congress (NDC), Member of Parliament for South Dayi constituency, Nelson Dafiamekpor is wailing over the demolition of his 3-storey building.
The legislator is alleging that, he feels has been targeted by some task force members believed to be from the State Housing Company Limited (SHC) in the demolition exercise.
According to him, a joint team from the personnel of the military and the police service without court order stormed the Adenta Frafraha area today, pulling down his 3-storey building.
Some reports suggest that, about 15 other uncompleted properties including that of the MP have been reduced to rubbles in the area.
Nelson Dafiamekpor in a media interview has threatened court action, claiming he has contacted every necessary ‘powers’ to get some answers over the exercise, but his several calls and messages to the MD of the SHC have been ignored.
The NDC man expressed worry over the demolition, insisting that, he suspects it was a targeted exercise, since other properties around his building were not touched.
He asserted that, because the task force didn’t want it to look like a targeted exercise, they broke some few fence walls of other houses around his property.
The lawmaker added that, his colleague Member of Parliament for the area, Yaw Boabeng Asamoah is equally helpless after visiting the demolition site.
“The buildings before mine were spared because he told me that he placed a call to somebody and that person instructed that building should be left out, even if it will take 10 years, I will pursue them in court,” he vowed.
Another victim also told the media in an interview that, his entire life investment of Gh¢200,000 have been totally demolished without any proper explanations to him.
The emotional victim amid tears mentioned that, he and his family are totally devastated, since he does not know where to begin his life.
