The Kumasi Metropolitan Chief Executive, Samuel Pyne, has reiterated the assembly’s commitment to decongesting the City Centre.
Speaking after the inauguration and swearing-in of newly elected assembly members in Kumasi, he assured that plans are underway to tackle the challenge.
He cited the non-completion of the Kejetia and Krofrom markets as significant obstacles in addressing the issue.
Mr. Pyne further emphasized that despite the Assembly’s strict enforcement of its by-laws, some individuals are resisting compliance.
As a result, the Assembly has taken action by arresting six individuals as a deterrent to others.
On their part, the newly sworn-in Assembly members have urged the government to expedite the release of the Common Fund to aid in completing projects in their respective electoral areas.
