CCMA finally stops construction of stalls

The Cape Coast Metropolitan Assembly has finally resolved to halt construction activities at the New Kotokoraba Market.

The decision follows actions of some traders at the market who demonstrated and blocked the construction of the said stalls some days ago.

The traders who didn’t take kindly to the said construction of stalls moved in last Monday to demolish the construction of the stalls arguing the construction will increase traffic situation at the market.

The construction site according to the aggrieved traders should be left to serve its original purpose as a packing and offloading park.

The assembly had taken the construction decision to create space for traders who could not get allocation into the new kotokoraba market due to limited space.

Speaking to Ultimate News, the Public relations officer of the Cape Coast Metropolitan Assembly, Richmond Yeboah explains that the decision has been reached to help restore calm and sanity at the facility necessary for trading activities to go on smoothly at the market.

He however stressed that the assembly will continue to explore other avenues in providing trading points to accommodate traders who did not get space at the market to feel comfortable in going about their activities.
