JDM Built it: This is How Kejetia Market Looks at Night

Development Economists underscore the importance of infrastructure in promoting economic development and transforming the living standard of the masses.

Infrastructural projects like roads, hospitals and markets open up the economy and generate employment opportunities.

In the second stage of his theory, "Stages of Economic Growth", Rowstow identified massive infrastructural transformation as a pre- condition that countries must fulfill in order to develop.

No wonder successive governments in Ghana have demonstrated some level of commitment towards the sector.

Indisputably, history, will remember John Mahama as an icon when it comes to infrastructural development in Ghana. His appetite for infrastructure is unparalleled in the era of the fourth Republic.

At the height of this record in infrastructure lies the Kejetia Market. This magnificent edifice, beautifully situated in the heart of Ghana's second largest city, Kumasi is not only a national asset but one of the "prides" of the West African country.

Illuminated at night, the Kejetia Market is indeed a delight to watch. Efforts must be made to construct similar ones across the country. This will not only propel economic growth but reduce the rate of fire outbreaks in our markets.
