GIPC Boss raises canopy type market for Agona-Nkwanta fishmongers …and builds another for Busua market women

Date published: September 27, 2012

Women at the Agona-Nkwnata market in the capital of the Ahanta West District can now heave a sigh of relief, following the construction of a canopy-type market structure to contain fishmongers by a philanthropist.

The fishmongers have, over the years, been selling and trading in the rain and scorching sun without a shelter.

This sordid situation, which the fishmongers at the market finds themselves in, apparently touched the heart of the Chief Executive Officer of the Ghana Investment Promotion Council (GIPC), Mr. George Kwame Aboagye, who has constructed the canopy type structure to contain them.

The structure, which is 179 feet long and 143 wide, was constructed at a cost of GH¢25,000, and the fishmongers are currently using it.

One of the fishmongers, Madam Ama Akuro, who spoke to this file, expressed her gratitude to the GIPC boss for coming to their aid.

According to her, the fishmongers have over the years suffered from selling in the rain and sun, and the quick intervention by the GIPC boss could not have come at any better time than now.

Meanwhile, the GIPC boss has constructed a modern market structure for the people of Busua. The said market was initially being built by the Ahanta West Assembly, but was abandoned.

The market center, which would soon be commissioned, is currently being used by the market women.
