Read their full press statement below:



Having sited a press release purporting to come from the Kumasi City Market board of directors, on the opening of the Kejatia market which have been extended for one extra week start Monday 20th March 2023, we wish to categorically state that we disagree with this vehemently. Let no one take we traders and transport operators for granted. It very clear since the board has a constant source of living they don’t care what source of livelihood the traders and transport operators depend on. Well, we wish to serve notice to the public that Kejatia will be open for trading on Monday. We will not accept the further one week closure.

We wish to put this questions forward

1. What did the board do with the numerous warnings from fire service, one of the copies of the warning letter attached to this release?

2. What is the board trying to hide from the public? Is it their incompetence or ineptitude or their reluctant to act and supervise effectively when they needed to do so?

3. So what have they done within the four (4) days so far when the market was closed down? We can confidently say when given one(1) full year they can’t do anything to help us.

4. Why is the board playing bromance with the management specifically the managing director? Is he their errands boy who does their bidding so they don’t want to touch him?

5. Why is the board Chairman and the managing director still at post after supervising this disaster? They must go now before we proceed.

6. We were told all the juicy stories about the Kejatia Market, is anyone trying to cover the lie they told us about the structural integrity of the market.

7. Has the board taken notice of the traders who deal in perishable goods and that even the three days has negative impact on the market.

8.How is the board going to compensate traders who by virtue of the closure will lose customers to stiff competitor around the Kejatia Market?

9.Is the board going to take responsibility of the daily earnings of traders?

10 For the number of days traders do not trade, will the management have the courage and boldness to ask for service charge from traders when the market is opened.

11. Where was the board who are told showing up as though they care so much and have been working so much when in actual fact they have been sleeping and allow Kejatia to deteriorate.

12. We have heard the repetition of the word structural integrity, wow, does the board really care about the structural engineer of Kejatia? Where were they when seven incidence of burst pipe lines destroy traders Wear for which 33 traders are in court with Kumasi city Market limited? Today, fire has expose them big time so they want to buy time and hide their shameful faces.

13. So what is the government lead by his Excellency Nana Addo Dankwah Akuffo Addo position on all this, do they really care about our woes? Does the president really care about the Kejatia economy in this difficult times of the nation? Does the president sleep comfortably while traders occupying over 800 shops with transport operators suffered this way? We are also part of people of Ghana ooh.

We are by this release calling on all traders and transport operators to come to work tomorrow Monday 20th March 2023, no one should stay home. Everyone should come along with red bans.
