The Member of Parliament for Tema West, Carlos Ahenkorah last week charged residents to stop the Tema Metropolitan Assembly task force from demolishing their properties.

The TMA Works Engineer, Maxwell Adu Boateng who was supervising the demolition exercise said the structures were creating a nuisance on the edges of the road.

But the MP, Carlos Ahenkora who got alerted of the exercise went to the scene and urged residents to stop the task force from destroying their properties.

The MP, who is also the Deputy Minister of Transport subsequently decided to question Mr Adu Boateng about the demolition exercise.

But residents said the Works Engineer, upon sensing danger of the angry MP, fled the scene in his pickup vehicle.

Meanwhile, the Chief Executive of Tema Metropolitan Assembly, Felix Mensah Nii Anang-La, said that the MP was aware of the demolition exercise and he is, therefore, shocked that he decided to attack the engineer.

Felix Mensah Nii Anang-La added that the assembly has always been sending removal notice to the affected residents, but they often ignore them.

He believed that instead of attacks, the residents, as well as, all the three MPs [Tema East, West and Central], Assembly members and residents, must support the Assemblies “Tema Restoration Agenda” vision.
