The newly built interchange at the Kwame Nkrumah circle which is yet to be opened by President John Mahama has been decorated with flags of the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC).

The development irked passersby, with many asking why party faithfuls would hoist its flags at such an event.

Business is flourishing with the sales of NDC paraphernalia at the Kwame Nkrumah interchange.

The traders are into selling T-shirts, scarves, wrist watches, headgear, key holders, umbrellas, calendars, handkerchiefs, belts, clothes, necklaces and beads branded in NDC’s colours and symbols or embossment of President John Dramani Mahama’s portrait.

The GH₵320.2 million project was jointly financed by the Brazilian government and the government of Ghana.

A statement issued by the Ministry of Roads and Highways, said the opening was necessary to reduce congestion and allow traffic to flow freely at the interchange and its environs.

The statement asked the drivers of big trucks to, as a matter of urgency, observe the height restrictions when using the Interchange, and also tasked traders to transact business at authorised locations.
