The Deputy Minister for Lands and Natural Resources, responsible for Lands and Forestry, who also double as the Chairman of the Appiatse Reconstruction Implementation Team (ARIT), Mr Benito Owusu-Bio, has reassured victims of the Appiatse explosion of handing over a modern green community as expected.
He indicated that in spite of meeting timelines, “the government is not just building houses, we are creating a modern green community with all amenities like good drainage systems, roads, markets, among others to bring Appiatse back to life.”
He gave this assurance when some members of the reconstruction implementation team paid a site visit to Appiatse on Friday to inspect the progress of work.
The Deputy Minister charged the project consultants, AESL, to pay close attention to the details and ensure that external works like the drains and roads are well done.
He debunked claims that the government had promised to complete the project in three months and urged the residence to exercise patience to allow the smooth progression of the work.
Mr. Charles Blankson-Hermans, a member of the ARIT Committee, also tasked AESL to urgently address roadworks and landscape to magnify the outlook of work as well as construction of the market.
The project consultants, AESL assured the Deputy Minister that all instructions would be taken into consideration and implemented soon.
