Some angry traders at Afia Kobi Market, one of the satellite markets within the Kumasi Metropolis have accused the Kumasi Mayor, Osei Assibey Antwi of killing their business since he assumed office.

“We knew he was going to be helpful to us but he solely take decisions which eventually go against us as traders”, Queen mother of the market, Janet Boama stated.

“Hon. Osei Assibey Antwi has put our business in his pocket”, she accused in an interview with the media after a press conference to vent their anger calling for the Mayor’s head.

“He has taken everything concerning the market as his personal property even security and lightning”, the Queen mother stressed.
