A/R: Gov’t approves €248m for Kejetia project

The government has approved an amount of €248 million for the construction of the second phase of the Kejetia market in Kumasi in the Ashanti Region.

Out of this amount, €93million have been factored into this year’s budget.

The first phase of the project which started in 2015 is yet to be completed due to series of lawsuit against the contractors over some portions of the land.

Addressing a press conference, the Mayor of Kumasi, Mr Osei Assibey Antwi said the assembly will soon embark on a relocation exercise of traders who occupy the current central market for the construction of the second phase.

He further lauded the Kumasi Traditional Council for their support in ensuring the construction of the market facility.

He said: “we want to commend the Kumasi Traditional Council for their tremendous support for the Kejetia-central market redevelopment project. Now, government under the able leadership of Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and also through the support of parliament, the €248 million that is the total sum has approved for the second phase and out of the €248 million, €93million was factored into this year’s budget and has been approved…”
