REJOINDER – OPERATING WITHIN LaDMA AREA OF AUTHORITYAnnouncements, News, Spotlight — October 16, 2012 at 3:17 pm Print This Post | Email This Post
This advertisement by the Ledzokuku-Krowor Municipal Assembly (LEKMA) seeks to correct an erroneous impression created by a publication in the “Daily Graphic” and the “Ghanaian Times” editions of Monday, October 15, 2012, on pages 86 and 27 respectively by La Dade-Kotopon Municipal Assembly (LaDMA).
The general public is by this rejoinder informed to disregard the said publication by LaDMA as some of the areas of authority claimed are false. Indeed Regulations, 1, 2 (4) and 5 of the Schedule which specified the areas of the Assembly in L.I. 2133, did not mention areas such as Accra Mall, Airport Hills, etc. as part of LaDMA.
Contrary to the Claim and the base Map provided, there already exist a base Map (see right) developed by the Greater Accra Regional Co-ordinating Council (RCC) which demarcates the District boundaries of Metropolitan, Municipal and District Assemblies (MMDAs) in the region, and this includes the eastern boundaries of LEKMA and the Accra Metropolitan Assembly (A.M.A.), (out of which LaDMA was carved).
It is therefore precarious for LaDMA to assume authority over areas which were hitherto outside the jurisdiction of its parent District (i.e. A.M.A.).
We wish to give notice to the general public, especially those having residential and/or commercial facilities in areas depicted on the above base Map to ignore LaDMA and desist from having any dealings with them in respect of payment of rates, licences, fees etc. as prescribed in Local Government Act. 1993, Act 462.
You may contact us on the address below during office hours from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on working days for further information.
