Unconfirmed reports say the founder and leader of the Synagogue Church of all Nations (SCOA) in Nigeria, Prophet T.B Joshua is currently building a residential accommodation on top of the Sewerage plant near the Achimota School in Accra, blocking the flow of both liquid and solid waste from the school community.
T.B. Joshua is very popular in Ghana because of his connections with President Mills and his recent purported role in the victory of the Ghana Black Satellites at the FIFA World U-20 Championship in Egypt.
The Nigerian Prophet, according to our source is one of several encroachers erecting structures on the Achimota School land without the permission of the Accra Metropolitan Authority.
The Achimota School stands the risk of being closed down following the collapse of the sewerage system.
The Accra Metropolitan Assembly is reportedly suing the management of the school for exposing students and the public to health risks.
But the management of the school is blaming the situation on the activities of encroachers who have built on parts of the sewerage network thereby blocking the flow of both liquid and solid waste from the school community.
The Chairman of the Board of Governors of Achimota School, Mr. Kwasi Okoh, in an interview with Citi News said the closure of Achimota School is not the panacea to the problem.
According to Mr. Okoh, the problem stems from the activities of the encroachers.
The illegal erection of structures has broken the underground pipes thereby causing the spill of human excreta around the school premises.
“Unless we solve the problem of the sewerage flowing, the problem will not be solved because even if Achimota School closes today and the sewerage is still coming there and if it is not getting out we will still have a problem.”
According to Citifmonline.com’s independent sources, aside the erection of his huge residential property, currently under construction on the Achimota lands, Prophet TB Joshua has also built his church on another part of the encroached land.
One source however added that “I don’t think when he (Prophet T.B Joshua) did it he knew that all the underground cables were coming there. He thought he was just stealing the land and building, he didn’t know what he was doing.”
The construction of the Prophet’s residential property is believed to have started some four or so months ago.
The school’s sewerage system is a large network of tunnels, which connect the various blocks of the Achimota Senior High School, Achimota Basic School, and converge at a terminal and treatment plant in the school’s farm, which has currently been encroached on by developers.
