Alan Kyerematen on market tours in the Eastern Region

Mr Alan Kwadwo Kyerematen, an independent presidential candidate for the 2024 general elections, has pledged to establish modern retail markets in seven areas within the Eastern Region. During his campaign aimed at engaging with market women nationwide to understand their challenges and devise solutions, Mr Kyerematen made this commitment.

The campaign led him to Nsawam, Adeiso, Asamankese, Akwatia, Kade, Suhum, and finally Koforidua, the capital of the Eastern Region, on Thursday, March 21, 2024. Addressing the gathered market women, who turned out in large numbers to see the former Minister of Trade and Industry, popularly known as Alan Cash, Mr Kyerematen promised that if elected in the December 7, elections, he would oversee the construction of modern markets.

"These markets would include facilities such as a crèche to provide a safe place for the children of market women, expressing concern for those who currently carry their babies on their backs while working.

He detailed that the modern markets would also feature a clinic, a contemporary lorry station, and an amusement centre.

During the event, Auntie Serwaa from the Amankesse market expressed the collective frustration of women with both the National Democratic Congress and the New Patriotic Party.

She highlighted the reason for their enthusiastic reception of Kyerematen, citing his offering of an alternative to the two major political parties
