Stories from Isaac Akwetey-Okunor
Residents in the Eastern Regional capital, Koforidua, have raised red flags over the sale of its Parks and Gardens land to a private developer.
The private developer, whose name was not available as at the time of filing this report, has already started construction work, as a portion has been cleared for a project yet to be known.
The beautiful nature of the facility has now been destroyed, as most of the trees have been cut down, with work already ongoing by the private developer.
The New Juaben South Municipal Chief Executive (MCE), Isaac Apaw Gyasi, denied knowledge anything of such incident barely four months ago, when news went around swift that the area has been sold to a private developer.
However, it can be confirmed that work has begun on a portion of the Garden, with most trees being cut down to make way for the said project.
The facility currently hosts recreational activities, religious activities, as well as serves as a resting place for the general public, with lots of species of flora to choose admire.
Attempts to reach the MCE on the update of the matter at the time of filing the story proved futile.
