The President of the Association of Building and Civil Engineering Contractors in Ghana, Prosper Yaw Ledi has lauded government's decision to redevelop two of the city’s slum areas, Nima and Maamobi to a ‘luxurious’ abode for the indigents.

The building expert said the gentrification is possible – after citing other countries who have redeveloped their slum areas to tourist sites.

“Yes, this is doable, we can do this,” he said.

Residents of popular suburbs in Accra - Nima and Maamobi – are to get ready for some major facelift in their area.

The Works and Housing Minister, Samuel Atta-Akyea said that the redevelopment of the slum will give meaning and beauty to the President’s vision of Inner City and Zongo Development.

He told the press Tuesday that to achieve that, government “is collaborating with the Lands and Zongo Development Ministries to turn the approximately 1,039 acres of prime land into a world-class residential enclave.”

Speaking on NEAT FM’s evening political talk show ‘The Torch Light’, Prosper Ledi called on government to involve the services of his association in the redevelopment process.

“We have topnotch Engineers here in Ghana who can sure this project is executed nicely. Government should involve us,” He told host Mac Jerry Osei Agyeman.
