The Accra Metropolitan Assembly has sacked me from Spanner Bus stop

Mr Fosu has however lamented that government authorities are always disturbing him because of where he stays and does his business.

He said:

“The Accra Metropolitan Assembly has sacked me times without number from this place, but I still find myself here.
“The A.M.A is the one worrying us here, the officials come around to sack us from here."

According to him, he was once sent to a cell by the authorities after he was seen on the spot and for refusing to move from the place which he describes as lucrative. But he was set free by a judge.

Nigerian journalist, Amaka Okoye said she knows the man. Her words:

"He is quite an interesting fellow. In 2020 I interviewed him. At the time he sold roasted corn. His tie and dress sense generally stood out as always."
