The Mayor of Accra, Elizabeth Kwatsoe Tawiah Sackey has commissioned a refurbished shed at the 31st Makola market.

The rehabilitation of the dilapidated structure which began two years ago is expected to accommodate some 665 traders and ease congestion in the Central Business District (CBD).

Speaking at the ceremony on Friday, 29 July 22, Chief Executive of the Accra Metropolitan Assembly (AMA) Elizabeth Kwatsoe Tawiah Sackey said the rehabilitation of the shed at the Makola market would help create more space to accommodate traders who have encroached on pedestrian walkways and the streets.

She reiterated the Assembly’s commitment to redeveloping the market and called on stakeholders to come on board and help make the markets more convenient for traders.

“Now we need to transform the market by rebuilding and giving them the necessary ultra-modern market space, as we speak, my outfit is working effortlessly to bring on board some partners to help us, so I would also like to use this opportunity to call on stakeholders to join the course in rebuilding our markets” she averred.

President of the 31st Makola Market, Christiana Laryea, in an address, expressed her heartfelt gratitude to the lady Mayor and the AMA for rebuilding the market shed and urged traders on the streets and pavements to relocate to the market.
