IMANI Ghana asked to make objective arguments over government’s new housing deal

 

Chairman of the Parliament Committee on Works and Housing David Assuming Tetteh has described as unfortunate concerns raised by Policy Think Tank IMANI Ghana over government’s new housing deal.

 

 

IMANI Ghana is questioning government’s new housing deal with Ghanaian company, Italconstruct International to build a little over 4,000 housing units for public servants and another1,000 housing units for the security services by aNigerian company, Snecou Group which is partnering the State Housing Company.

 

However Chairman of the Parliament Committee on Works and Housing and MP for Shai OSU Doku, David Assuming Tetteh says the line being towed by IMANI Ghana is unfortunate.

 

According to him the committee is yet to arrive at a report hence he is at a loss how the Policy Think Tank is raising red flags about the two housing deals.

 

He indicated that instead of criticizing the committee IMANI Ghana should present its proposals and concerns to the committee for deliberation and consideration.
