The Member of?Parliament?(MP) for Tema West, Irene Naa Torshie Addo has condemned a demolition exercise that took place at Adjei Kojo in Tema on Tuesday.
About six hundred houses in the area were razed down by the Tema Development?Corporation.?
But according to the residents the land was sold to them by the Tema Chief.
In an interview with?Citi News?Naa Toshie Addo lamented that the residents were not treated fairly because they were given permits by the TDC to build.
?They did not build today. They have been living there for over 6 years and they have been collecting ground rents from them,? she said.
According to her, because the TDC and the chief were both claiming?ownership?of the land an agreement should have been reached between the two parties before the demolition exercise took place.
This in her opinion would have brought peace amongst the people.
