As part of the action today, the market women refused to sell their food items to buyers creating discomfort among consumers.

The protestors have warned that they will be forced to abandon their business to embark on the demonstration to climax the protest in the coming days.

Market women argued that they’d indicated to the Birim Central municipal assembly about the difficulty the planned relocation to Quarters top will bring to their businesses. In view of this, they rather suggested a piece of land in the Central business area be released for their relocation, but the assembly refused to grant them.

Meanwhile, the traders say they are also getting disappointed in president Akufo-Addo for not honoring the promise made to them after the Oda Central market got burnt on 13th September 2021.

President Akufo on October 7, 2021, visited the burnt market and promised that the market was soon going to be reconstructed.

The displaced traders currently ply their trade at the roadside under the mercy of the rains and scorching sunshine but are being relocated hence the protest.
