Mfantseman MP to pay traders’ loans if market not Commissioned in three months

Traders at the Asa-Bee Market in Mfantseman, Central Region, have threatened to take their loan capital from the Member of Parliament, Ophelia Mensah Hayford, if their pulled-down wooden market structure is not replaced within three months.

The traders stormed a delegation meeting with the MP, Mfantseman Municipal Chief Executive, Ike Lord Ennu, and a contractor, Rev. Maxwell Amponsah, to express their frustration.

The Asa-Bee Market, named after former MP, Asamoah Boateng, was built on an abandoned dumpsite, posing health risks.

The current market conditions are unhygienic, and traders are selling along the highway due to the choked market space.

The contractor, Rev. Maxwell Amponsah, promised to complete the project within three months, while the Assemblyman, Samuel K Baiden, assured that the project would be commissioned within the stipulated time.

However, some traders expressed doubts, threatening to take action if the project is not completed on time.

The MP, Ophelia Mansah Hayford, encouraged the contractor and assured him of her support, stating that she is waiting to commission the project in three months.

The traders’ frustration is palpable, and the clock is ticking for the completion of the project. Will the contractor meet the deadline, or will the traders be forced to take drastic action?
