All Set For Apiate Community Reconstruction To Begin – Minister for Lands

Samuel Abu Jinapor, the minister for lands and natural resources, has reaffirmed the government’s commitment to rebuilding and remodeling the Apiate Community within the allotted time frame.

The Vice President, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, will cut sod to start construction of the core community, which will include 124 housing units, on behalf of the President of the Republic, he said, adding that the Masterplan for the reconstruction of the Appiatse rural model community is ready.

 

By the Grace of God, he added, “Within a year, we will deliver these homes,” implying that every part of the model Apiate housing units, which range from 1 to 7 bedrooms, is functional.

The Minister’s visit included a look at the residents’ living conditions and wellbeing following their May relocation from tents to temporary housing.

 

He also took the opportunity to refute some claims made by members of the public that money intended for community reconstruction was being used instead to build the National Cathedral.

 

He urged the people of Apiate and the surrounding areas to ignore such propaganda and untrue claims, claiming that “The Apiate project is non-partisan, without colorization.”

He also took advantage of the occasion to encourage Ghanaians to contribute to the support fund in order to help the Apiate Reconstruction project, stressing that the money would be used in an open and responsible manner.

 

The Minister also symbolically decommissioned the residents’ former homes, which were tents, as part of his visit to mark the end of the tent-dwelling era.

 

Mr. Jinapor expressed his gratitude for the excellent work done by the Chairman, Benito Owusu-Bio, the members of the Apiate Reconstruction Implementation Team, and the Municipal Chief Executives.

 

“The work of the ARIT team, led by my Deputy Minister for Lands and Forestry, has really impressed me. They have performed admirably and demonstrated that they are a true testament to Ghana’s long history of public service, he said.

 

Speaking to the residents, Mr. Jinapor urged them to band together and help the government deliver the homes, stating that their combined efforts are necessary at this crucial time to ensure that they receive the homes.

 

The Lands Minister also gave the locals food donations totaling GHC 10,000, including bags of rice, sugar, and oil.

 

Plans are far advanced, according to Benito Owusu-Bio, Deputy Minister for Lands and Natural Resources and Chairman of the Reconstruction Implementation Team, to ensure that the community has access to electricity, water, and other necessities.

 

He added that plans, survey work, and site plotting are all being finished so that the actual reconstruction work can start the following month.

 

Kyiame Kwame Ofori thanked the Minister and the reconstruction team on behalf of Nana Kojo Bremibi Chief of Apiate, stating that the Minister’s initiatives show true leadership. He also wished him and his team luck as they begin the restoration process.
