As a result, Minister Atta Akyea hinted that the CID is thoroughly investigating the matter and all the officials involved in the Saglemi housing are currently being interrogated.

From the report of Ghana Institute of Surveyors signed by the president, the work on ground can be quantified to an amount of $64million, a whooping $114million can not be traced. Because of this, he said the NDC can not be entrusted with the housing sector if they comeback to power.

“Saglemi questions the bona fide of NDC to do any serious housing project,” he added.
