The Parliamentary Committee on Local Government and Rural Development, says the TDC Development Company Limited and the Ghana Ports and Harbours Authority, GPHA, must pay rates and fees to the Tema Metropolitan Assembly (TMA).

The Committee affirmed the landlord status of the Assembly adding that it is not right for the two entities to refuse to pay revenue to the TMA, while they operate on its lands.

Members of the Committee made up of  Nii Lantey Vanderpuaye, who is the ranking member and MP  for Odododiodio,  MP for Banda and First Minority Whip-Ibrahim Ahmed, Sene East MP Dominic Napare,  and Ampem Nyarko, MP for Asuogyaman, paid an oversight visit to the TMA  yesterday (May 10).

The Committee urged the TMA to take the necessary steps including resorting to the courts to ensure that the two institutions and their tenants pay their rates including building permits to enable the Assembly to accrue the needed revenue for the development of the area.
