An 11-member Kumasi Central Market Steering Committee, led by Mr. Daniel Ankomah, the Chairman, has embarked on a day’s familiarization tour of the Kejetia/Central Market Redevelopment project to be abreast of the progress of work.

The delegation had representatives of the leadership of the various trading associations at the Market, and the exercise, amongst others, was to enable the traders inspect the completed stores where they would be relocated upon completion of the first phase.

About eight thousands stores are to be given out to the traders who were relocated from the Kejetia terminal and Central Market traders to be affected by the second phase of the project.

Mr. Ankomah was grateful to the government for living up to expectation per the work done so far under the project.

“We are truly, satisfied with the quality of work executed”, he observed, saying this was critical for the successful relocation of the traders.

He entreated the stakeholders to rally behind the government as preparations are made for commencement of the second phase of the project.

Parliament has approved a loan of 93.3 million Euros for the second phase of the project.

The enthusiastic traders were impressed with the work done so far, saying this would enable them have a comfortable settlement to pave way for the second phase. 

Mr. Emmanuel Danso, the local consultant to the project disclosed that in due course the Assembly will commence verification and validation of the traders who were registered before the start of the project.
