According to the National Concerned Spare Parts Dealers Association, the intention by government through the Greater Accra Region Coordinating Council to relocate them to Afienya would be resisted.

To them this decision will affect their trading activities as well affect the wellbeing of their respective families.

“We consider the decision as very unfortunate and unnecessary because it will not help we the spare parts dealers at Abossey Okai as relocating to a different place is not what we need to make our business thrive”.

This was disclosed in a press conference held today, 10th May, 2022 in Abossey Okai, suburb of Greater Accra.

This decision to relocate the Abossey Okai Spare Parts Dealers was announced by the Greater Accra Regional Minister in an interview on Adom FM on 26ty May, 2021.

Abossey Okai is the heart of a thriving trading community in Ghana and it contributes massively to the economy of Ghana.

Therefore the Concerned Spare Parts Dealers Association  believes what is needed is an improved facilities in the community like the provision of amenities like adequate parking and waste disposal.

According them, the said executives who are in talks with government about the said relocation are interim executives whose tenure of office have long expired.

“They have no authority to have talks with the government on behalf of the traders of Abossey Okai and their views do not represent the accurate views of the traders of Abossey Okai
