Government has provided temporary resettlement for members of the Kantamanto Traders Association at the car park of the Accra Railway Station after last Tuesday evening fire outbreak.
This followed consultations with the Ministry of Railways Development.
A statement by the Minister of Railways Development, Joe Ghartey, said a Government delegation led by the Vice President, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, met the executives of the Kantamanto Traders Association at the Jubilee House, in view of the devastating effect of recent fire outbreak on the Kantamanto market.
Mr. Ghartey said the meeting agreed that the car park of the Accra Railway Station be used for the trading activities of the members of the Association during this Christmas season and the New Year.
He said being a peak trading period, this intervention is to help alleviate the plight of members of the Association.
Vice President Bawumia had earlier assured of Government’s support for traders whose wares were destroyed by the fire.
