Maamobi Residents Demonstrate Over Planned Demolition
Residents living on the Maamobi Kasoa market land have come out to the streets to protest the Ayawaso North Municipal Assembly’s decision to move them without compensation.
The land they are on was acquired by an executive instrument in 1963 but has since been encroached upon.
After previous attempts by successive governments to demolish structures on the land to pave the way for the construction of a market complex, the Ayawaso North Municipal Assembly settled on August 28 for the demolition.
Meanwhile, the discussions didn’t go down well with the people who live in the areas earmarked for the redevelopment exercise.
Also, they have complained that the notice is short and discomfort to their livelihood.
They marched from the Maamobi market to the Kwame Nkrumah Interchange and stop at a point where a government representative will accept their petition.
