The Minority in Parliament have described the decision by government to hire a Singaporean architect to redevelop Accra as illegal.

The minority, led by its spokesperson on Road and Transport, Kwame Agbodza said the move by government also counts as an insult to Ghanaian engineers.

According to the Senior Minister, Yaw Osafo Maafo, the remodeling of Accra has become necessary as a result of the changes in population, economic activities and the impact of globalisation.

He, therefore, called on the Ghana Institute of Planners, members of the Ghana Institute of Engineers, and the Ghana Institute of Architects to kick against the decision since government is acting in an illegal way.

He added: "The Senior Minister is engaging in an illegality and must be stopped… It is not right. This is not political,”
