Some traders at the Kumasi Central Market have lost their cool at the Ashanti Regional Co-ordinating Council (RCC) and Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly (KMA) over issues surrounding their relocation.

They are therefore threatening appealing to the government to come their aid or face their wrath in the next general elections.

They alleged that these authorities have discriminately denied them places to trade.

"Our blood pressure had risen up due to the situation we are facing"

''We pay our taxes a responsible citizens of this country and so if the authorities are treating us like strangers on this land then we will also tell them four years is not far from today, we the traders in the Ashanti Region, a stronghold of the NPP will vote the NPP out in 2024''

Another trader alleged that she has paid an amount of GHC 5000 to the authorities for store but to no avail.,

According to him, the leaders and representatives of these aggrieved traders have failed to communicate to these traders the plans and decisions of the Assembly about their relocation before eviction takes place.

Mr Amponsah who was speaking with Nana Ampratwum on Omanbapa Morning Show indicated that, timeline for the eviction has not taken effect thereby calling on the traders to corporate with the Assembly and ignore any false information.

He also elaborated that majority of these traders demonstrating against the Assembly have refused to trade inside the newly built Kejetia Market alluding it to low patronage and have resorted relocating to unauthorized location.
