The great day has finally been celebrated in a glamorous style from the Kasoa New Market in the central region.
Top FM day out at the Kasoa New Market was met with a heavy crowed from the vicinity comprising of traders, drivers, by passers, spectators and many others.
Beginning from Top FM’s Morning Show Ghana Te Sen with Hostess Nana Yaa Boamponsem, the crowd could not be controlled as many the traders shared their plight on the challenges in the market on the Social Development segment of the show Ghana Nti.
Some traders who spoke in an interview with the crew with frustration said their major challenge is the huge sums of money they have to pay to get a store to sell their goods.
Information has it that, the market women contributed from their daily savings to build the new market but the assembly is now renting it out to them at very expensive cost.
This has compelled many of them to trade by the road side under tents and umbrellas.
Some of the traders were seen selling by the roadside.
Why should we build our own market for the assembly to rent it to us, we should have been selling from the stores but let them use it for what they want since they have refused to give it out to us.
The issue of sanitation in the market is not different from the poor Sanitation issues in most of the markets in Ghana.
One of the traders told Top FM that, the dues they pay is not utilized to their benefit.
“I don’t understand why we pay dues in this market, it a useless effort”.
The assembly is not helping us at all, the only take money from us but fail to think about our lives, if not so our condition will not be like this, she stated.
Kwame Buckman followed with Friday’s edition of Top FM’s Mid-morning Show Hyeden.
Some of the traders and passengers got in the old school and funeral mood and danced to the music that was played on the show. The excitement reached maximum when our major sponsor, SC Johnson, producers of Raid insecticide spray and coil were gave out some their products.
The tension heightened when it was time for the Kasiebo No Coequal, everything came to a standstill and attention was given to the news presented by Maame Yaa Emefa Coffie and Daakyehene Ekow Sam Budu Koo Fante.
Gift sharing continued after the news.
