Abossey Okai: Some Spare Parts Dealers Threaten Demo Over Relocation To Afienya

Published

on

The National Concerned Spare Parts Dealers have threatened to stage a protest in two weeks if the government does not reverse its decision to relocate them from Abossey Okai to Afienya.

The Greater Accra Regional Coordinating Council has given notice that the relocation will take place as part of efforts to decongest the capital.

According to Regional Minister Henry Quartey, this move is the result of an agreement with the leadership of the spare parts dealers.

The National Concerned Spare Parts Dealers, on the other hand, claims that the leaders negotiating on their behalf lack capacity.

Takyi Addo, the group’s Public Relations Officer, expressed the group’s determination to resist the relocation at a press conference on Tuesday.

“The alleged executives who agreed to the government’s proposed relocation are interim executives.” Their term in office has long since expired. They lacked the authority to speak on our behalf, and their opinions do not reflect ours.”

“Government’s attempt, via the Greater Accra Regional Coordinating Council, is an affront to our trading activities.” We will vehemently oppose any government attempt to relocate us. We’ve given the government two weeks to reverse the decision or we’ll take to the streets.”

He urged the government to instead develop proposals that will assist their businesses in growing.

According to the Abossey Okai Spare Parts Dealers Association, the agitations are being fueled by landlords who are afraid their businesses will fail if the spare part dealers are relocated.

“Those agitating against this project are those who have set up shop and invested here; there are about 20 of them.” These people are hiding behind the so-called National Concerned Spare Parts dealers, which number around 5. We’re puzzled as to why they can’t come out and must hide behind closed doors to air their grievances.”

“When this issue arose and the landlords approached us about the fate of their investment, we allayed their fears by explaining that not all of the traders would be forced out, and that some would remain.”

The letter read;

16 May 2022

RE: CHUCK’S CHEESE & FNAF

It is with great concern that we bring the following to your attention. We have noticed that some of our learners are acting strangely and out of character.

We learned that some of them came into contact with a terrible webpage called: Chucky’s Cheese Restaurant.

Here children interact with a demonic doll. At first, it is very entertaining and friendly, but after a while, the doll indoctrinates them, dares them and threatens them if they do not do certain things.

Daring them includes: strangle a friend, kill a teacher, burn your house, etc.

Chucky Cheese Restaurant was recently replaced by FNAF- Five Nights at Freddy, which is even worse.

These sites are already active in Namibia.

We urge you to please control what your child is watching on your phone, their own phone, tablets, laptops, etc.

We, as parents, are thinking they are playing an innocent game, but it is NOT. They are dared to even kill.

Please also inform your friends and other family members of this. Please contact our school Counselor with any enquiries or comments. tours faithfully.

Nana Kwaku Bonsam, a celebrity fetish priest, has expressed Ghanaians’ collective frustration with President Nana Akufo-Addo.

According to him, President Akufo-Addo will go to hell for deceiving Ghanaians and failing the people.

Nana Kwaku Bonsam said on Angel FM, where he pronounced the curses, that Akufo-Addo has failed to deliver on his promises to Ghanaians and is thus a sure candidate for Hell.

“You mentioned that we have the money yet are hungry. But now that you’ve joined the government, we’re even more hungry. We can’t afford to live comfortably, and our girlfriends are deserting us because we can’t afford to keep up,” he explained.

“The bible talks about lies, and the President lied, thus he will go to hell,” the fetish priest believes the President’s lies will send him to hell.

Nana Kwaku Bonsam expressed concern that Ghanaians were living in abject poverty, which had been exacerbated by poor governance and economic hardship.

As a result, he has placed the blame squarely on the shoulders of President Akufo-Addo, who he claims has failed to capitalize on the country’s resources in order to push Ghana to become a prosperous nation.
