A word of caution has been sent from the Greater Accra Regional Minister to those selling government lands under the guise that the lands belong to them.
Mr Quartey expressed his disapproval of the activities of land guards as it is against the law.
Addressing the press, the appalled minister said “persons complicit in the sale of government lands will face the full rigours of the law”.
“I caution those engaged in selling government lands and deploying land guards to desist from it, as the Regional Security Council will deal swiftly with any acts of lawlessness from such groups,” he cautioned.
The Minister also hinted that the illegal structures at the Ramser sites would be pulled down.
“I am being told by some people; I will not be going after [those occupying Ramsar sites]. Tell them I am coming. Very soon, we will be at the Ramsar sites, and if we find that a church is sitting on a waterway, mark my words, we will pull it down”.
Also, the minister said buildings within the core zone of the Ramsar site at Sakumono would be demolished.
