Two years after the Trade Fair was demolished to pave way for its redevelopment, legislator for the La Dadekotopon constituency Naa Odoley Sowah has bemoaned the deplorable state it has been left in.
It will be recalled how structures housing businesses worth millions of Ghana cedis were raised down together with equipment and furniture for the redevelopment of the area.
This led to the hue and cry of those affected as they pointed accusing fingers at the government for sabotage and complained that they were not even given ample time to relocate while government officials at the time said the move was to make way for redevelopment of the Trade Fair.
But unfortunately, the said structures of the Trade Fair Center have now been overtaken by weeds, with debris from the demolition still scattered around the place.
Lawmaker for the affected constituency lamented that the situation was condemnable and that government must make good its promise to redevelop the facility.
“People had their businesses there, which have completely been shut down. As we speak, when you go there, it’s now turning into a forest. We need to know what plans they have for Trade Fair.”
“The traditional Council says a committee has been set to look into the issue, I have decided to wait and see how that pans out since the land belongs to them. While we wait, something has to be done about it. Authorities of the place should clear it to keep it safe” she said.
