The will of the people has been proven stronger than the resolve of city authorities after some Ghanaians defied the Accra Metropolitan Assembly (AMA) order to make a temporary dwelling in a space under the Kwame Nkrumah Interchange.

Christened 'Accra Dubai', the space near the VIP Bus station has become the fertile ground where street hawkers, passengers and some mentally ill people gather.

The AMA dutifully cemented the ground and laid granite cobblestones to prevent such people from loitering but the restrictions do not appear to be deterrent enough.
