Disgusting photos: Filth Has Engulfed Madina Highway
Heaps of refuse have taken over the streets of Madina Municipality, especially the main highway from Legon to Adenta in the Greater Accra region.
It is an eyesore as pedestrians and users of the road are compelled to cover their nose when using that section of the road due to the pungent smell emanating from the refuse.
The situation looks very ugly to the extent that some of the residents are questioning whether the La-Nkwantanan Municipal Chief Executive (MCE) Jenifer Dede Afagbedzi is sleeping on her job.
It would be recalled that angry traders and street hawkers in Madina Zongo junction who were ejected from the streets by the La-Nkwantanan Municipal Assembly were demanding the removal of the Municipal Chief Executive for the area Jenifer Dede Afagbedzi for treating them unfairly.
According to them, either the President Akufo-Addo keep her at the post and lose their votes in 2020 or fire her in order to have their votes.
The traders and streets who were over 5000 in number were ejected from the streets and relocated to a parcel of land near Redco flats.
The land in question was previously being occupied by squatters until they were recently ejected by the assembly.
Since the assembly ejected the squatters there has not been any serious development in the area to make it decent for people to do business there.
The angry traders and street hawkers who accused the La Nkwantanan Municipal Chief Executive Hon. Jennifer Dede Afagbedzi of treating them unfairly, said the area is not in good shape adding that there are no facilities like toilets and sheds and wondering how they could cope there.
They argued that giving the dusty nature of the area, it would become difficult for them to ply their business if it rains.
When MyNewsGh.com reporters visited Madina on Thursday, it was established that the traders who were ejected from the streets have returned because the assembly upon a second thought decided to clear the traders from the Redco flats area where they were relocated to pave way for proper demarcation of the area.
This means that the resources spent in ejecting the streets hawkers and traders have gone to the drains.
