Fufu Seller Around Pokuase Interchange Stopped From Selling
A woman operating a small eatery around the newly constructed Pokuase Interchange has been stopped. This also follows a viral video of the fufu seller plying her trade at the site. Clement Wilkinson, the CEO for the Ga West Municipal Assembly, who also has oversight responsibility over the Ga North Municipal Assembly, in
a statement said, his outfit together with the Municipal Coordinating Director for the Ga North and Assembly Members have taken the necessary steps to stop the said woman from carrying out such illicit activity around the Interchange. Mr. Wilkinson further warned persons all engaging in such illegal activity in other parts of the
municipality to also desist forthwith or be dealt with in accordance with the law. Clement Wilkinson is therefore using this medium to caution all the general public, and any person who plans, intends to engage or participate in such illegality around the bus stops, pavements and footbridges of the Interchange and also any one or any
person who intends to paste posters and bills or any of such sort to immediately desist from such acts or face the full rigours of the law and the general public is also being reminded that the project is for everyone, and so he encourages all and sundry to be citizens and but not spectators so that the interchange can also serve its
intended purpose. In a related development, consultant for four-tier Pokuase Interchange, Kwabena Bempong has also said a taskforce from the Ga North Municipal Assembly will be stationed around the project at night to prevent traders from doing business close to the edifice. I have been promised by the Ga North Municipal
Engineer that they are going to send their task force to apprehend the persons engaged in such activities. They [tasforce] will not be working only in the evenings. They will also be working during the day, Mr. Bempong said. The Pokuase Interchange is also a four-tier interchange situated at Pokuase Junction, connecting motorists to Awoshie, Kwabenya, Amasaman, and Achimota. The
project which was also constructed by Messrs China Zhongmei Engineering Company Limited was also commissioned in July 2021 by President Nana Akufo Addo. A few days after the commissioning, the Minister of Roads and Highways, Kwasi Amoako-Atta, had asked the Ga North Municipal Assembly in the Greater Accra Region to implement stringent rules to ensure that traders do not take over the spaces around the interchange.
