Mr. Emmanuel Danso, the Community Liaison Officer of Contracta, the contractors of the project, said the facility is ready for business.
According to him, important amenities such as security outlets, banking halls and others, were ready for the terminal to operate fully.
“The Kejetia Terminal is now ready for traders to start business and hopefully business will be in full swing here next week”, he promised.
In an interview with Nhyira FM, Mr. Danso disclosed that 97 traders had so far paid their renting fee in full to occupy places at Kejetia.
“Four out of the 97 traders that have paid the renting fee in full were given their shop keys to inspect the place on Tuesday”, Mr. Danso said.
According to him, about 4,000 traders have been given allocation forms at Kejetia “and some of them have paid commitment fees”.
Mr. Danso disclosed that a total of 8420 spaces and shops are in the newly built Kejetia, adding that the facility is in good shape for business.
He also disclosed that all is set for the second phase of the central market redevelopment project to commence in the city, very soon.
