Government lacks commitment to complete second phase of the Kejetia-Central Market Redevelopment Project – Traders

Traders in the Ashanti Regional Capital Kumasi say they doubt government’s commitment to completing the   second phase of the Kejetia-Central Market Redevelopment Project before the end of 2024

According to them, the Akuffo Addo lead government has not done enough to finish landmark projects they started in the Ashanti Region making it difficult for them to take any further promises from the government.

Their comment follows directive by the president to the Minister of Finance, Dr Mohammed Amin Adams to complete the stalled market project before the end of the year.

The newly appointed Minister during his visit to the Manhyia Palace on Tuesday February 20, 2020 assured the Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II of government’s commitment to finishing the remaining works on the market facility.

He emphasized that, the President has personally tasked him to see to the completion of the project

Reacting to the revelation in an exclusive interview with OTEC News Reporter Jacob Agyenim Boateng, the President for Federation of Kumasi Traders and a leading member of the Combined Kumasi Kejetia – Central Market Traders, Nana Prempeh said they were skeptical about the recent promise by the minister

“Yes we welcome the decision to resume work on the project, but I must say we are skeptical with any promises from government on this market”.

“Government has on countless occasions pledged to complete the project, yet it has been stalled, that is why we are always cautious when taken such pledges “

He however commended the government over moves to bring attention back to the project
