This construction comes to give hope to thousands of traders at the Marché Congo market, who have been facing several fire disasters due to overcrowding and poor manipulation of electrical appliances.
Moore than 150 people were affected in a fire incident that occurred months ago in the market. They received little compensation of FCFA 200, handed over by the Minister of Territorial Administration, Paul Atanga Nji, on behalf of President Paul Biya.
Minister Atanga had announced government was nursing plans to see into the construction of a modern market in Marché Congo in the coming months.
