The Kumasi Central Market traders have rallied support for the former Mayor of Kumasi, Kojo Bonsu, in his quest to lead the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the 2024 election.

They say their support for him stems from his visionary leadership, which they say led to the construction of the Kejetia Market and the Rattray Park in Kumasi.
