The Gomoa Central District Assembly in the Central Region has commissioned a new market center and a lorry station at Gomoa Afransi with the call on the people to rally behind President Akufo-Addo led NPP government for more developmental projects.
Hon. Naana Eyiah, the Member of Parliament for Gomoa Central Constituency made the call adding that President Akufo-Addo led NPP government is focused on improving the economic lives of the people fairly.
"Commissioning of the new market and lorry station for Gomoa Afransi is to enable our traders and transport operators to improve their various businesses. Am extremely happy that our market women in Afransi and its surrounding areas will no longer travel to Agona Swedru before going to Accra and other market centers to transact business.
"Drivers will now ply all the routes linking Gomoa Afransi to other towns and communities. This will enhance the smooth transportation of goods and services not only in Afransi but across the constituency. New market stores and stalls are to be constructed to accommodate more traders so that they could expand their trading activities," the MP intimated.
Hon. Naana Eyiah further commended the chiefs and people for their contribution and support towards the realisation of the project.
"I want to thank Nananom for their support and encouragement they continue to give to us. They are the pillar behind the scenes towards the high rates of developmental projects dotted across the constituency. My DCE and my humble self will continue to be grateful to them and pray for wisdom and God's blessings upon them and their subjects so that we can provide more social amenities to improve standard of living in the Gomoa Central Constituency," the MP stressed.
DCE for Gomoa Central, Hon. Benjamin Kojo Otoo lauded Chief of Gomoa Afransi, Nana Ogyedom Obrenu Kwesi Atta VI for his immersed contribution towards the establishment of the new market.
According to him, market women in Afransi were operating in some unauthorized places along the streets in the town resulting in severally being knocked down.
"We appreciate his immersed contribution by giving us a vast stretch of land for the new market. When we thought all Hope was lost, he gave us assurance that the new market would be established. True to his words Gomoa Afransi now has a new market center. Commissioning of Gomoa Afransi new market is a landmark history. The zeal at which traders are selling their wares this morning explain their willingness to sustain the new market," he posited.
He assured the traders the Assembly in collaboration with the MP would arrange loan facilities through various banking institutions in the area to enable them expand their trading activities.
Present were Gomoa Central District Coordinating Director, Mr. Daniel Koney, Assembly Member for Gomoa Afransi, Hon. Ato Nyame, Queen mother of the Gomoa Afransi Market Traders Association, Nana Okyerewa, Presiding Member for Gomoa Central District Assembly, Hon.
