Former Finance Minister and NDC flagbearer hopeful, Dr Kwabena Duffuor has commiserated with traders who were affected by the fire outbreak at the Kejetia Central Market.

Late on Wednesday, the first and second floors of the market caught fire, resulting in the destruction of some stores.

The part of the market which was under fire is known as ‘Dubai’.

Speaking on Adom FM’s Dwaso Nsem show, Dr Duffuor said the incident was a very unfortunate one.

He indicated his connection with the Kejetia Market project as it is one of the last projects he worked on during the administration of the Late Prof. Mills.

“The Kejetia Market is very dear to my heart because it is one of the last projects I worked on under the Late Prof Mills,” Dr Duffuor said.

The aspiring NDC flagbearer called on the government to immediately provide the needed support to the affected traders.

Dr Duffuor also called on the Mayor of Kumasi and the Management of the market to take all necessary steps to protect lives and properties.
