Some residents of Nima are demanding that President Akufo-Addo sack the Minister for Works and Housing, Mr. Samuel Atta Akyea or resign immediately.
According to them, the Minister must apologize and withdraw a statement he made on the floor of Parliament in a hot debate revolving around the 2019 State of the Nation Address (SONA 2019).
A statement from the Works and Housing Minister, they say, suggests that for the first time Nima residents will have a flushing toilet.
A press statement signed by Ayishatu Seidu, a resident of Nima, maintains that the Minister’s statement is nothing but a reckless, inaccurate and irresponsible statement against the residents of Nima.
The residents say the Minister must “do the honourable thing or face sleepless nights until he gets sacked or that much talked-about flushing toilets will not be entertained in our constituency because his likes hail from Nima,” saying that flushing toilets are not needed by over 75%.
According to them, the residents of Nima have flushing toilets in their luxurious houses and President Akufo-Addo, who presented the State of Nation Address has his resident at Nima, saying this is a complete insult to the president .
“In addition to the stated fact that the so-called flushing toilets will not be entertained if the minister fails to apologise, we would as well make sure he never step his foots on Nima soil for any business in and around Nima if the President refuses to sack him over his reckless and irresponsible statement,” they warn.
Mr. Atta Akyea’s statement they described as reckless statement worth demeaning Ghanaians, most especially the President for which reason he must apologise to the good people of Nima.
