COVID-19: Be “Generous”; You’ll be dealt with if you exploit tenants – Housing Minister Warns Landlords

Works and Housing Minister Samuel Atta Akyea has warned landlords against exploiting the COVID-19 situation to encumber their tenants with extortionist rates or evict them in ways that fall foul of the law, adding that such deviance would be dealt with by the law.

Speaking at a press briefing on Tuesday, 28 April 2020 organised by the Ministry of Information, Mr Atta Akyea said: “We’re being admonished to stay at home as much as possible, and even with the lifting of the lockdown, you have to stay at home, but if where you are staying is having challenges because of the bad behaviour of a landlord or landlady, for that matter, it will be extremely unGhanaian”.
