NPP national chairman Jake Obetsebi Lamptey will have custody of a government bungalow he bought during the Kufuor administration at the end of this month.

An Accra High Court has ordered the Odododiodio MP and deputy Trade Minister Nii Lantey Vanderpuye to hand over the keys to the contentious bungalow to Jake Obetsebi Lamptey, who the Supreme Court ruled as having legally acquired the state bungalow in 2008.

Deputy works and housing minister Samson Ahi told Joy News government will comply with the order but says the Accra redevelopment policy fashioned by the NPP under which government bungalows were sold to officials of the Kufour administration has left ministers and public officials stranded without accommodation.

He said the government will take steps to scrap that policy.

But former works and housing minister in the NPP administration Hackman Owusu Agyemang says government must come clean on the lack of accommodation for minister of state.

He dismissed assertion the redevelopment policy was a creation of the Kufuor administration, stating, it was implemented by the Rawlings administration.

He explained the Kufuor administration found the policy good enough, a reason why it continued.

He alleged if current claim they do not have accommodation then it is because former government appointees under the Mills administration are still occupying state bungalows and not because of the redevelopment policy.
