The Chairman of the Tetteh Quarshie Art and Craft Market, Frank Todah, has described June 28, 2021, as a nightmare.

This day was when the shops at the market were completely razed down to the ground when an unannounced demolition exercise was undertaken at their former location.

Speaking in an interview with Etsey Atisu, host of SayItLoud on GhanaWeb TV, he said that it was not an easy thing for them.

Reflecting on two years since that exercise, Frank Todah explained that the horror of that day was something that haunted them for so long.

This, he added, was because, on that day, things they had built over decades were all just brought to the ground.

“My brother, it wasn’t a nice experience. It’s just like to say that over 30 years of your livelihood has just been taken away from you in a twinkle of an eye. What happens to your family; your dependents? It was a nightmare,” he said.
