Agbogbloshie Onion Sellers Want Me Dead; But I Will Still Move Them - Henry Quartey
The Greater Accra Regional Minister, Mr Henry Quartey, says he has uncovered a plot by some onion sellers at Agbogboshie here in Accra to have him killed spiritually over the plans to relocate the sellers to the abandoned Adjin Kotoku site. Henry Quartey said nothing will stop
him from doing his work as part of the Let’s Make Accra Work campaign. According to him, so far as God exists, nothing will happen to him. Whether they like it or not, we will move them because we have made alternative arrangement for them. I have heard they have gone to
some mallam [spiritualist] to kill me. They are kidding. They should tell the mallam [spiritualist] to return to his hometown because so far as God exists, nothing will happen to Henry Quartey by the grace of God, and by the July 1, 2021, we shall move them all, he insisted.
Moves taken since assuming office
Mr. Henry Quartey since assuming office under his Let’s Make Accra Work campaign, has undertaken several initiatives to also provide lasting solutions to everyday challenges in the region, with the view to transform the national capital. He has also supervised the removal of the unauthorized traders along some major streets, the
pulling down of unauthorized structures, and carried out decongestion exercises too and other sanitation drives aimed at ridding the capital of fifth and although these initiatives have also won him the admiration of of some Ghanaians, the Minister believes the totality of all these efforts should not be viewed as political vindictiveness.
