Oguaa residents want larger market and job avenues from govt

By GNA

A cross– section of residents in the Cape Coast Township, on Wednesday, expressed their desire for the establishment of a new market to ease the congestion at the Kotokoraba market.

They also called for the establishment of factories to provide employment for the youth, under President Professor Atta Mills’ administration.

The call for a new market was mainly made by traders and market women who complained that the Kotokoraba market is now over crowded with people and vehicles, each struggling for space, while traders who are unable to access stalls within the market, are compelled to display their wares by the streets, thereby causing traffic jams.

Speaking to the GNA in Cape Coast, Messrs Ben Ghartey and Emmanuel Quarshie, drivers, and Almamun Ahmed, Evans Mensah, Francis Quarshie, Kweku Anderson and Daniel Acquah, dealers in electrical appliances, said there was the need for the government to set up factories in the metropolis to provide employment for the youth.

According to them this will help improve the living conditions of the youth and reduce crime in the metropolis, as well as reverse the Central Region’s classification as being one of the poorest regions in the country.

Other residents also called on President Prof. Mills to further reduce fuel prices, so that prices of other commodities will also go down.

Others also expressed the wish the there would be general development in the metropolis.
