These traders, who mostly trade in second hand cloth indicate that the stores given to them are smaller in size and cannot contain their wares.
Operations Director of the Kumasi Central Market Traders Association, Mr. Michael Fosu in February, 2021 stated that, all was set for the relocation of the Central Market traders to pave way for the construction of the Central market.
According to him, traders who trade in second hand cloths and traders in lockable shops will be relocated to Abinkyi market while traders who ply in food stuffs have already been relocated to Race Course market.
He added that, various leaders of the respected Associations in the market will visit the place to ascertain whether they can ply their goods there.
Meanwhile some of the traders speaking to Silver FM's reporter, Akwadaa Nyame vent their displeasure at the authorities at the Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly (KMA) over what they describe as lack of developmental projects at the Abinkyi Area for traders.
According to them, some of the allocations at the Abinkyi Market area belong to other traders and they are threatening to engage them in a scuffle if they ply their goods there.
The angry traders threatened to vote against the New Patriotic Party in the next four years if things continue like this.
