According to him, the Assembly is collaborating with the Social Investment Bank to build an ultra-modern market for the community to replace the current market structure.

The completion of the market, he indicated is expected to solve the difficulties faced by the market women in the discharge of their businesses at the current facility.

Honorable Kupualor who made the disclosure when he appeared as guest on the Rite Morning Ride on Thursday said works on the construction of the facility was already underway.

“I have already ordered for 8 trips of gravel which is to mark the beginning of work any moment from now,” the MCE said. “This is in collaboration with the Social Investment Bank and this in the end will fully transform the market.”

The revelation of the MCE was in response to allegations made by market women that their constant plea for the assembly to rebuild the market had fall on deaf ears.

“It is not true that the Akutunya Market has been neglected by the Yilo Krobo Municipal Assembly. As far as dealing with infrastructural challenges of markets in the municipality is concerned, the Akutunya Market is the first point of consideration on the table,” he averred.

Among others, the assembly chief disclosed that other facilities such as the satellite market at the Somanya roundabout, the Klo Agogo Market and the Nkurakan markets all in the Yilo Krobo Municipality are going to see massive transformations.
