Some members of Parliament led by the Majority leader, Alban Bagbin have paid a visit to the demolished site at Old Fadama known as Sodom and Gomorrah in Accra.

Their visit was to observe the extent of damage caused to the structures of the residents who are mostly migrants from the three northern regions.

He was accompanied by the Northern caucus and some Members of the House.

Member of Parliament for the Constituency, Odododiodio, Nii Lantey Vanderpuije and the Local Government Minister Collins Dauda took the MPs around the site.

Meanwhile, Collins Dauda, is set to appear before Parliament over the recent demolition of structures at Accra's Old Fadama, that displaced thousands of people.

Deputy Minority Leader, Dominic Nitiwul, said the summon has been occasioned by the subsequent protest that was occasioned by the demolition which went as far as to the parliament house.

Also, Alban Bagbin is demanding that the Mayor of Accra, Alfred Oko Vanderpuije must also be summoned before the House to offer explanations on the demolition of Old Fadama which has sparked anger among the residents.

Speaking on the floor of Parliament Tuesday, he argued that since the Accra Metropolitan Assembly (AMA) is the body undertaking the exercise, it is only fair that its Chief Executive is made to directly answer questions on the decision to eject the residents.

“… We expect the authorities to be available like the Minister in charge of Local Government, the AMA Chief Executive and his directors to be available to hear from Parliament as to how these matters could be implemented,” he stressed.
