A group calling itself the Coalition of La Youth Association (COLA) has accused the Mahama-led administration of conniving with the Ghana Armed Forces (GAF) and the Lands Commission to allegedly steal lands belonging to Ga-Dangmes.

At a press conference organised to make their concerns known on Monday, October 17, Chairman of the group, Augustine Nii Amoanai, said President Mahama and his government have ignored the gains made by previous governments on Ga-Dangme land issues.

He said the people have lost hope in the president, as they feel he is rather supporting the military to illegally acquire lands belonging to the Ga-Dangmes.

“Sadly enough, our brothers and sisters around and within the corridors of power have lost their voices relative to issues affecting the Ga-Dangme people, which silence we find as condoning the raw deal government is serving our people”, he added.

Mr Amoanai added that it has “also been alleged that one Ibrahim Mahama is part of the syndicate engaged in this plundering of our lands”.

He alleged that a syndicate is operating on the Adentan Aviation lands, a case which is currently in court.

“Our information is that the entrenched position of the current Member of Parliament for Adentan, Ashie Moore, against the activities of the syndicate, led the machination against his re-election to represent the constituency,” he said.

Mr Amoanai also said government has plans to demolish all structures from the Police barracks to the 37 Lorry Park under a project termed ‘Airport Extension Project, Phase II.’

“We expect details of the project to be disclosed to us with the accompanying compensation arrangements to the allodia owners of the lands affected,” he added.

He said government should as a matter of urgency ignore its intention to sell the Ghana International Trade Fair until all issues regarding the compensation of the Trade Fair acquisition are sorted out.

The group has, therefore, given government a one-week ultimatum to act on its concerns, or face drastic actions from the Ga-Dangmes.

“We conclude by saying that the so-called rule of law and democracy is rather an empty rhetoric and not operational under the current circumstances since there is freedom but no justice on Ga-Dangme matters.”

Pulse Ghana is seeking Government comment on these allegations.
