The Minority New Patriotic Party in Parliament has again punched further holes into the controversial STX Housing deal, asking President John Mills to terminate the multi-billion-dollar housing agreement approved by Ghana’s Parliament on August 3, in the interest of Ghanaians.
At a News Conference on Monday September 6, the Minority described the deal as “fraudulent” and a major threat to the fragile national economy.
The Minority’s latest outburst about the deal comes at the time the Water Resources, Works and Housing Ministry has rolled out an elaborate plan for the take-off of the housing project, which involves the construction of 30 thousand housing units for the country’s security services.
Addressing Journalists at the Headquarters of the NPP, Minority Leader, Hon Osei Kyei Mensah-Bonsu, said President Mills must pull the plugs on the STX Housing project and instead consider a cheaper way of housing the nation’s security services.
The Suame Member of Parliament accused the Mills administration of peddling widespread falsehood about the STX deal, warning the country will pay dearly, should the project commence based on the terms of the deal approved by Parliament on August 3, 2010
