The Minister for Ashanti region, Simon Osei Mensah has ordered all metropolitan, municipal and district assemblies to stop issuing permits for temporary structures.
Simon Osei Mensah believes the trend is affecting the payment of compensation of structures that end up on construction paths.
“All MMDCE’s in the Ashanti Region must desist from issuing permits for the construction of temporal structures because no compensation will be paid if these structures are found in construction paths in the future.”
This order came up during a media briefing ahead of the closure of the Konongo Section of the Kumasi-Accra main road.
The Municipal Chief Executive of the Asante Akyem Central Municipality in the Ashanti region, Susan Akomeah, however, pleaded with residents to relocate to pave way for the reconstruction of the broken bridge
