President Mahama Opens New Kotokuraba Market In Cape Coast
Government has again delivered on a major campaign promise to construct the Kotokuraba market into a modern one.
The wish of the people of the Central region was to have the old market which was in a poor state rehabilitated into an ultra-modern one.
President Mahama, who inaugurated the facility said government will invest in projects that give citizens value for money and also boost the socio-economic development of the country.
Radio Ghana’s Pascaline Adadevoh reports that the euphoria by residents and traders at the inaugural ceremony showed nothing but a group of grateful people.
The beautiful facility comprise shops, banks, a car park, an office block, restaurants, a fire department, offices, a drainage system and walkways to ensure the free movement of traders and customers.
The Cape Coast stadium and the Kotokuraba market were projects that the late President Atta Mills, promised the people of his hometown.
President Mahama, said he remains committed to fulfilling promises made to the people of Ghana.
The Central region within three years have benefited from the rehabilitated Cape Coast Stadium, the Atta Mills memorial research library, expanded facilities of second cycle schools in the region, ten of the Community Day SHS and asphalted town roads.
The market project was constructed by the China Railway Construction and Engineering Group.
It was funded with a one point three billion dollar facility from the EXIM Bank of China.
