New Juaben South MP promises to give beads market a facelift

Vendors at the Koforidua beads market have expressed their profound appreciation to the Member of Parliament (MP) for New Juaben South, Michael Okyere Baafi, for making the efforts to give the market a facelift.

The market, which is believed to have been in existence for over 200 years, started from Koforidua Jackson Park in an open space, but later moved to the Jubilee Park, which is closed to the Regional Police Command at Galloway

The current location of the market, provided by the local government authority, became necessary when the decision was taken to reconstruct Jackson Park, but the market has suffered many setbacks due to lack of basic facilities.

The open-space beads and crafts market, which operates mainly on Mondays and Thursdays lack security lights and washrooms.

Based on these challenges, the Member of Parliament visited the market to have first-hand information and also held discussion with the vendors.

Speaking with The Chronicle, the leader of the market, Sumaila Alhassan, thanked the MP and reaffirmed his confidence in him.
