Market Queen for Kojokrom in the Essikado Ketan Consitutency, Grace Asandoh has alleged that party folks of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) are sabotaging the redevelopment of the market.
Speaking on the Jolly Breakfast Show this morning with Victor Baffour Awuah, the queen laments some propaganda are being spewed in the community that “the land has been sold out by the Sekondi Takoradi Meropolitan Assembly to a private developer”.
She noted that the unfortunate news has caused some disaffection in most of the market women.
Mrs Asandoh mentioned that she’s been very responsive in address the matter to restore calm in the market. She disclosed that, she has personally taken charge of the supervision of the project to ensure the project is completed in schedule.
Dozens of market women at the market were evicted some three weeks ago by the STMA to allow for expansion works to be taken at the market.
According to the Public Relations Officer for the STMA, John Laste, the expansion work will see to the construction of new stores [40 of them] at the area. He assures the project is scheduled to be completed in two months time.
