Traders at the Asafo Market in the Ashanti Region have expressed joy over the demolition of a storey building on a waterway in the market.
The demolition came after traders issued a seven-day ultimatum to the Kumasi Metro
They alleged that the market gets flooded whenever there was a downpour due to the presence of the building hence losing their properties.
The demolishing of the building was reportedly ordered by the Minister for Works and Housing, Francis Asenso Boakye.
“We are very happy. The building becomes a hindrance to our progress anytime it rains,” a trader said.
“Most of us have lost a lot of our properties. We are grateful to the government for demolition this building.” —myjoyonline
