Two Leadership Groups At Kejetia Clash Over Procurement Of Meters
Opposition by a section of the Kumasi City Market traders over the open tender process to source meters for the Kumasi City Market has been described as a misplaced priority.
According to the Kumasi City Market Traders Union, managers of the market facility should not be carried away by the tension mounted by those who are opposed to their position and forge ahead to pursue the intended open tender process to the letter.
The trader’s union whose unflinching support to management and the board’s position is unwavering believes the open tender process is the best avenue to ensure competition, fairness, effectiveness and accountabiity.
The union which is made up of the majority traders has decided to object to those calling for the sole sourcing on the grounds that the situation and conditions for the provision of the meters do not support their argument and seasoning.
Moreover an earlier attempt by those campaigning for the sole sourcing and accompanying quotations raises a lot of eye brows.
“We are therefore entreating the managers of the facility to go ahead with their position whereby procurement condidtions as prescribed by law will be duly adhered to in the interest of our trader”, the union insiats.
Numbers to follow up.
