- The NDC officials claim the locks to the stores have been changed by NPP executives
- An out of court settlement was agreed upon to peacefully allot the stores
The National Democratic Congress’ (NDC) executives in the Central region have accuses officials of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) of securing the ultra-modern stores at the Kotokuraba market to card – bearing members of the NPP only.
The regional chairman of the NDC, Bernard Allotey Jacobs and the regional communications officer, Kwesi Dawood issued a press statement and outlined the claims therein.
They added that there are plans by the NPP to evict NDC members who already had slots in the stalls.
The modern Kotokuraba market, which comes with facilities such as restaurants, a carpark and a health facility was commissioned by former president John Mahama during the 2016 electioneering campaign.
The NDC executives alleged that a team of experts was put together to allot spaces to people, according to the rules of the court.
According to them, the NPP secured an injunction to restrain the NDC officials from carrying out the orders of the court.
The result of the back and forth between the two parties was an out – of – court settlement. The NDC are however of the stance that the NPP officials have changed the locks to the stores and are assigning them to their members.
