3 Kejetia Buildings to Go Down
THREE ULTRA MODERN buildings that have impeded the completion of the Kejetia Bus Terminal project will be pulled down in the coming days.
The follows an agreement between the Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly (KMA) and All State Construction Ltd, owners of the three buildings.
The demolition agreement was signed at the Manhyia Palace at the instance of the Kumasi Traditional Council (KTC) on Monday afternoon.
Lawyers of the KMA and All State Construction signed on the dotted lines and gave the green light for the huge buildings to be pulled down.
In line with the agreement, the three buildings would be effectively evaluated by a team of experts before they are eventually pulled down.
The KMA would also ensure that the Local Government would prompt government to pay the necessary compensation for the three buildings.
Again, the KMA would also guarantee that two other demolished All State Construction buildings at Kejetia, would be duly compensated by government.
The completion of the Kejetia Bus Terminal had been delayed for about eight months now because of litigation issues over land.
The agreement between the KMA and All State Construction would therefore pave the way for the edifice to be completed very soon.
The Bantamahene, Baffuor Owusu Amankwatia, also signed on the document as a form of endorsement of the agreement reached between the two parties.
