The Greater Accra Regional Minister, Henry Quartey on Wednesday, 22nd June 2022, led members of the Regional Security Council (REGSEC) to undertake a demolition exercise on 200 acres of fenced land belonging to the State under the care of the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR).
Out of the over 1,300 acres of CSRI land, over 900 acres have been encroached on, with the remaining 200 being sold out by unknown persons.
The Minister urged occupants of the over 900 acres of land, to get assistance from the lands commission to assist them get executive instruments, in other to be able to register their properties in their names since none of them have documents or permits after over 20 years of building.
He also admonished the REGSEC team to demolish everything to ground zero, ie. all existing and new spring-up buildings within the 200 acres of the fenced land should be demolished.
