The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has ordered for construction work to stop on the storey building at Ashaley Botwe School junction. The building has generated public discussion after photos of it went viral on social media.
The Executive Director of the EPA, Mr. Henry Kwabena Kokofu, who visited the project on
on Monday morning, ordered that construction work should immediately cease.
He said the EPA had not given a permit for the project. He consequently asked that the owner of the building visit the office of the EPA with the necessary documentation covering the project.

The contractor has reached the 6th-floor and indications are that it would go further up.

It has attracted public attention on social media and some have started talking about safety and structure integrity.

Whilst some are arguing that there is nothing wrong with it, others think there was a problem with the structural integrity of the building.

As of 10:41 a.m. during a visit, personnel from the National Disaster Management Organisation (NADMO) had visited the project site and were examining the structure.

It has been observed that the project itself was standing on the fence wall of the adjacent land on its right side.

There is a shop next to the fence wall.

Some residents disclosed that the shop owner had closed the shop and stopped operating it after a metal from the project site fell on the shop.

Another resident disclosed that some government officials have been frequenting the project site since it commenced but the construction work is still ongoing.
