Some commercial sex workers located at the new three-tier Kwame Nkrumah Interchange in Accra say business has been extremely good since the opening of the new infrastructure.
According to the ladies who spoke to Accra-based Kasapa-FM, the newly built Kwame Nkrumah Interchange has added value to their service.
One of the sex workers who only gave her name as Miriam said their rates have increased following the commissioning of the project.
The base rate which used to be GH₵30.00 has been slightly increased to GH₵40.00 for short time while the full night now costs GH₵120.00, a GH₵20.00 increase from the previous price.
“For the past two days, business has been good. The rates have slightly been increased but our clients are not complaining. Before they used to complain a lot but with the commissioning of the flyover, they have stopped complaining. You know the place now looks beautiful and so we have to dress very well to match it and this I believe is doing the trick for us. Mahama has really done well, he’s making us get more money,” she said.
Another lady, Gifty, 25, who also plies her trade around the former Obra Spot area said although her rates have not been increased, she now gets more clients since the commissioning of the project.
