-Shop owners at the Accra Mall have temporarily shut down their shops
-The lawyer for the tenants, Dr. Emmanuel Maurice Ankrah of Kuukua addressed the press concerning the action.
-The management of the mall did not comply with the agreement they have had with the shop owners in September 2019.
Shop owners at the Accra Mall have closed down their shops in the interim, following working conditions they have labeled as poor.
The tenants threatened the action would take place around midday to reveal the difficult working conditions under which they have operated.
It is clear, according to the protesters that the move has been to protect the Accra mall from going through what Westhills Mall has suffered.
The lawyer of the shop owners, Dr Emmanuel Maurice Ankrah said in a press release that the motive behind the movement has been to seek redress about the expensive rent and lack of promotional offers by the managers of the mall.
Following a collapse that occurred at the Accra mall last year, the sales dropped significantly, which worsened the plight of the titleholders at the shops.
Citinewsroom.com indicates that there was a meeting with the landlords in September 2019 to address the problems.
Some of the issues raised were to fix the ceilings in a manner that would not reduce patronage, increase the number of and quality of the restrooms at the mall, and reduce the cost of renting.
It was agreed at the gathering that the concerns raised would be addressed within two weeks, but the top stakeholders did not act as had been agreed.
This has compelled the shop dealers to undertake the action to seek redress to their problems.
