A demolition exercise embarked by the Tamale Metropolitan Assembly led by the Mayor, Musah Iddrisu at the Tamale market Monday morning seems to have incurred the wrath of some market women whose structures were completely destroyed.
The angry market women expressed their displeasure at President Akufo-Addo for what they described as endorsing the exercise at the expense of their businesses and monies for their livelihoods.
According to them, they were not given any prior notice before their structures were destroyed.
They have therefore vowed to vote against the Nana Akufo Addo in the 2020 general elections.
“The mayor didn’t tell us about this development earlier but he only came last Friday afternoon and asked us not to come to the market on Monday because they will demolish our structures.
“Nana Addo has disappointed us because they never informed us that they will sack us but now they have come to sack us from the market to suffer. We will vote against him if he fails to help us” one angry woman said.
“How can we take care of our children if he takes our businesses from us. We don’t have any help from any were but now they said we should go home and die. 2020 is just around the corner and so we will teach them a lesson” one trader warned.
But the mayor told Adom News’ Illiasu Abdul Rauf that the traders were informed months earlier and therefore could not fathom the conduct of the traders.
“I announced this several times on radio stations about three months ago so this is not new to them so we have started the exercise today and it is going to remain till I’m no more a public servant,” he said.
