Government makes U-turn on demolition of buildings within Sakumo Ramsar Site

The government has made a U-turn on the demolition of unlawfully erected buildings in the core zone of the Sakumo Ramsar site.

The Greater Accra Regional Security Council was scheduled to demolish all structures on the Ramsar site after fence walls in the core zones of the site were earlier pulled down in October this year.

But at a stakeholder engagement on Sunday, regional minister, Henry Quartey revealed that measures have rather been put in place to get the structures regularised.

The site comprises a coastal brackish-saline lagoon and the surrounding floodplains, freshwater marsh, coastal savannah grasslands with thicket vegetation, and a narrow sand-dune connection to the sea.
