April 14, GNA - Mr. Solomon Tettey Appiah, Municipal Chief Executive (MCE)
Kpone-Katamanso, has urged landlords in the Municipality to demand resident
permits from non – Ghanaians before renting out their properties to them.
The MCE gave
the directive during a town hall engagement with local opinion leaders,
residents associations, artisans, religious organizations, traders and youth groups
in the Oyibi, Nanoman, Seduasi and Bawaleshie(ONSBAC) communities.
noted that resident permits normally laid a paper trail so that when
non-Ghanaians did not obey Ghanaian laws, they could be traced and punished
him, property owners in the country did not conduct thorough background checks
on foreigners before renting out their properties to them adding, “We are
always interested in their monies and freebies.’’
further asked residents to be vigilant and meticulous and report any suspicious
person and activity within the Municipality for swift action.
He also called
on operators of Drinking bars, Eateries, Mosques and Churches to be law abiding
and minimize their noise making.
