Member of Parliament for Komenda-Edina-Eguafo-Abrem(KEEA) Samuel Atta-Mills has said government should sublet rental of government bungalows at the Assemblies in the light of ridiculous low rent charges.

He further said the Assemblies are not equipped to be renters hence privatization of the bungalows will ensure the buildings are maintained and rent effectively collected.

According to the KEEA legislator, now that the Assemblies are paying rent as low as GH¢14 Ghana cedis for two bedroom house and the buildings are not being maintained in the next ten years, when this buildings “collapse what then do we do”?

Mr. Samuel Atta-Mills further retreated that those staying in the government bungalows at the Assemblies who are not government appointees should be made to pay rent that reflect current charges, “you are not a government appointee but staying in government building and paying GHC14 Ghana cedis, master this is call arm robbery”.

We are putting so many burdens on the Assemblies, they are not equipped to be renters rather subletting it to a private body to manage the facility is the way to go, so that the Assemblies can pay some agreed percentages to this private bodies, he added.
