The famous Krofrom market project is currently witnessing an ongoing construction.
The project which was abandoned for decades received relief after the Ministry of Finance approved a decision by the Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly under the administration of Hon Osei Assibey to contract a loan facility for the completion of the project.
The contracting of the facility became necessary after the Ashanti Regional Coordinating Council (ARCC), through the local Government and Rural Development Ministry received “No Objection and Support” letters from the Finance Ministry.
Presently, the contractor is back to the site and together with his team are roofing the ultramodern facility.
The market which was initiated in 2007 by former President John Agyekum Kuffour as part of his jubilee projects, was abandoned in 2008 due to lack of funds.
The facility is ultramodern by design and when completed will accommodate 500 stores and shelves and will enhance business activities in the metropolis.
