Legon condemns ‘disrespectful’ National Security over demolished toll booth

The University of Ghana has condemned the demolition of its toll booth around Okponglo by the National Security Tuesday.

The Director of Public Affairs at the university, Mrs Stella Amoah,described the action as “unilateral”, saying “management is disappointed by the lack of courtesy”.

According to her, the university did not see the demolition coming because its management was not notified by the National Security outfit.

Mrs Amoah told Accra-based Joy FM  that the university’s governing council would hold an emergency meeting Tuesday to deliberate on the next course of action.

Earlier,  The National Security Coordinator, Lt. Col. Larry Gbevlo Lartey, said the demolished toll booths were makeshifts structures which had caused traffic jams and created “disaffection to the public”.

Mr Lartey said National Security was forced to demolish the structures after warnings for the university authorities to relocate them fell on deaf ears.

He said the toll booth could not be at that location under any circumstances.
