Persons living around the Maamobi market in the Senya electoral area in Accra are agitating against a planned demolition exercise by the Ayawaso North Municipal Assembly.

According to the residents, about 6,000 people will be rendered homeless if the exercise is carried out without proper engagement.

They are calling on the government or the assembly to value their assets and pay compensation or relocate them before they will agree to any eviction.

The residents say they have been living in the area for decades and any forceful eviction will be met with resistance.

They contend that they have been there for a long time now, only for the Assembly to give them an 8-day ultimatum to leave vacate. They want the authorities to rescind their decision.
