The hawkers, who were earlier driven off for free flow of human traffic, returned to the area to sell their wares after the New Patriotic Party won this year’s election.

The Accra Metropolitan Assembly, in collaboration with the police, on Tuesday morning cleared hawkers who took over the pavements at the Kwame Nkrumah Interchange.

The hawkers, who were earlier driven off for free flow of human traffic, returned to the area to sell their wares after the New Patriotic Party won this year’s election.

The hawkers claimed that their party had won the election, and hence they deserve the right to return to the area to sell.

But AMA boss Alfred Oko Vanderpuije has described the action of the hawkers as unfortunate.

“It is rather unfortunate that after a national exercise of this nature of an election when one party wins, then supporters of one party will say that our government is in power so they have to be indisciplined. I think that both our president and the president-elect have all addressed this issue that nobody should take the law into his hands and nobody should use the outcome of this election as a means to undermine our national development,” he told Accra-based Class FM.

He said: “The Kwame Nkrumah interchange has been developed by this current administration for the people of Ghana and if after an election any group of persons thinks that they can just do things that can be described as indiscipline that will not be tolerated."
