Reports reaching ModernGhana News indicate that the executives of the Kejetia Market Union have been locked up in a crucial meeting over the disconnection of power supply to the market.

The Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) disconnected power supply to the new market over non-payment of bills which accumulated for five months by management of the market.

A source among the executive told ModernGhana News that the meeting was to “plan the way forward towards restoration of power supply to the market.”

The traders have since been demanding separate meters for every trader to avoid what they suspect to be deliberate and wrongful billing by the managers of the facility.

The source also said they had picked signals that the management was planning to close down the market due to what they will say is insecurity.

“But we are waiting for them to take that action, we heard that they will say the darkness in the market poses insecurity, they will prove to us whether it is light bills we owe or rent, we are waiting for them paaa,” a trader noted angrily.

Meanwhile, ModernGhana News has picked signals that the former KMA boss who is now heading the National Service Scheme Secretariat, Osei Asibey Antwi has asked the KMA Coordinating Director to issue a cheque to pay part of the debts to restore power to the facility to enable the traders go about their activities.
