Some residents of Teshie, a community in the Greater Accra Region, have expressed reservations over the erection of structures at a site reserved for growing flowers and trees.

The Ghana cedi’s abysmal performance on a daily basis against major foreign currencies has earned it notoriety as the worst performing currency in the world.
Even though Government, at the beginning of the year, was considering going for a bail-out from the International Monetary Fund (IMF), it has now turned around to announce it is no longer interested in any IMF support.
