Traders at Kantamanto within the Central Business District of Accra have hailed Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia and the government for providing them with a temporal place for trading activities.
Chairman of the Kantamanto Traders Association, Opoku Afreh, who confirmed the latest development after a meeting with the Vice President at the Jubilee House (Presidency) on Friday, December 18, said the intervention by the Vice President is timely and will ensure that they are still in business while government explores ways of restoring the old market.
According to him, the new place, which is at the Railways, can accommodate over 1,000 traders who were affected following the fire outbreak earlier this week.
“We are grateful to the Vice President for his timely intervention by providing us with a temporal place for us to continue with our trading activities. This is the peak period for our trade but unfortunately, this week’s fire outbreak nearly ruined our Christmas but we are happy hope has finally come at last following this intervention by the Vice President,” he revealed.
