Ministerial office complex abandoned

Work has come to a halt on a building started by the now defunct Ministry of Regional Co-operation and NEPAD, which was intended to serve as its ministerial block.

The three storey abandoned structure is located a few metres away from the GRNA (Ghana Registered Nurses Association) Hostel, near the Gulf House, East Legon.

Messrs Thames Construction Limited, the contractors working on the project say they were instructed to stop work.

Officials of the Foreign Ministry, which now handles the NEPAD portfolio will not talk about the project, but dailyEXPRESS has gathered that no consideration has been given to the project, let alone what will done with it.

The Director of Estates at the Foreign Ministry, Mr. Asiedu when reached told dailyEXPRESS that his outfit is now looking at projects started by the defunct ministry, adding that at the appropriate time his superiors would decide on what to do with it.

For now it only remains but an uncompleted project difficult to trace who or which institution is responsible for it and what happens to the funds spent so far.

The Ministry of Regional Co-operation and NEPAD, a full-fledged ministry ceased to exist following the removal from office of the minister in charge Dr. Kofi Konadu Apraku. It is now a unit attached to the foreign ministry.
