The Ministry of Roads and Highways has spearheaded the pulling down of structures on land reserved to develop an alternative road to ease the traffic congestion on the American-House-Adjiringanor road.
The Sector Minister, Kwasi Amoako-Attah, who directed the exercise on Tuesday on a visit to inspect progress on the site, said his Ministry had given the owners of the properties five months notice to stop the construction, which was overlooked.
"And people should take a cue from this when I indicated that these two houses will go down, I was not joking and that's why I wanted to be here myself with my team to ensure that they go down.
"There is too much indiscipline in our nation, people don't respect the laws of our country either because they think they are rich or something else.
"If you are rich, nobody cares how you came by your riches and it is up to you, your household and your God. Nobody should attempt that because of his wealth, he can do whatever he or she likes in this country," he said.
