Traders begs Nana Addo to sack Kumasi major

Some oppressed merchants in Kumasi in the Ashanti area have approached President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to sack the Kumasi city hall leader Osei Assibey Antwi

The merchants need him terminated in light of the fact that he [Assibey Antwi] makes subjective moves which are not to their greatest advantage.

As indicated by them, they have no commercial center to exchange except for the civic chairman has reliably expelled them from the asphalts of the Central Business District (CBD) without giving them a spot to sell. 

Their response comes after the Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly (KMA) claims it has dispensed the Abinkyi and Race Course advertises as transitory exchanging locales to brokers from the Kumasi Central Market. 

The move is to consider the redevelopment of the focal market to proceed and per the plan, 4,000 recycled apparel venders and 3,500 retailers would be migrated to the Abinkyi Market while 1,000 fish merchants and different dealers would be moved to the Race Course. 

The Vice-Chairman for the United Petty Traders Association, Emmanuel Amoah, depicted the city hall leader's case that he has distributed them places at the Abinkyi and Racecourse markets, as bogus. 

He said the business sectors have effectively been involved and thus, the merchants didn't get space to exchange when they moved to those roads. 

He demonstrated that their consistent ousting by the civic chairman is delivering them jobless since they rely upon trivial exchanging to endure. 

Amoah approached Nana Addo to sack the Kumasi civic chairman and assign a "more equipped" individual who will consider their situation by giving them exchanging spaces prior to removing them. 

He expressed: "Whatever he does is without our anxiety and not to our greatest advantage."
