District Chief Executive (DCE) for Central Tongu in the Volta Region, Thomas Moore Zonyrah has awarded a contract for the continuation of the Mafi Kumase market centre.
Mr. Zonyrah promised to take keen interest in monitoring and supervising activities of the engineers to ensure the project is carried out and completed on time.
According to him, the project has been redesigned as agreed on by the assembly in their medium-term development plan.
The DCE disclosed that the new design comes with market stalls and sheds, repair work on the old sheds and stores, 10-seater water closet, a kindergarten for their kids, mechanised boreholes powered by solar, electrical works with street lights and waste disposal platform.
He therefore called on the assembly members and opinion leaders to help supervise the project and report any shortfalls to the engineers.
Mr. Zonyrah also warned the youth to desist from stealing building materials from the site.
The Mafi Kumase market centre which was started in 2014 has stalled due to lack of fund, poor supervision from the district assembly and commitment from the contractor.
Meanwhile, the new contractor has assured of completing the project and handing it over to the assembly within a period of 4 months.
