The Minister of Works and Housing, Samuel Atta Akyea says the Akufo-Addo led government will transform Nima, one of Accra’s slum community into a world-class residential enclave.

Mr. Atta Akyea made this known at a Meet-The-Press series  in Accra on Tuesday.

According to the Ministry, redevelopment of Nima forms part of Government’s plans to upgrade slums in the country.

According to the Minister, “the growing incidence of slum development in Ghana has been the result of rural-urban migration, limited supply of land, and regulatory frameworks that are, at best, indifferent and hostile to the needs of the poor.”

He said “even though Nima and Maamobi routinely suffer from inadequate provisions of basic facilities such as, housing, water, electricity, and drainage systems, the communities continue to grow.”

Adding that the President’s commitment to slum upgrading of Nima and Maamobi was stated forcefully in his message during the State of the Nation address delivered in Parliament on February 20, 2019.

The transformation of approximately 1,039 acres of prime land, which Nima and Maamobi occupy, he disclosed would give meaning and beauty to the President’s vision of Inner City and Zongo Development.

According to Mr. Atta Akyea, the Ministry of Works and Housing is “collaborating with the Ministries of Lands and Natural Resources, Inner City and Zongo Development, to make the aforesaid area a world-class residential enclave close to Jubilee House, the seat of Government without dislodging our good people who currently dwell in Nima and Maamobi.”
