“The design for the new Old-Road Community market structure is already available, and the construction works will soon get underway. The old market, which was constructed several years ago, is now in a deplorable state,” Said His Excellency.

Duport Road Community is one of few communities that have already benefited from market buildings, which the President has promised to construct. The 14-Gobachop is another market being built which is is expected to contain distinct compartments for the sale of different food stuffs and other goods as well as car park.

However, the government has made efforts to curb the situation through the ‘Coastal Defence project’, an initiative established to salvage salvaged some of the country’s biggest academic and medical referral facilities, the D.
