Businesses at the Trade Fair were destroyed two years ago
The demolition exercise took place following a redevelopment project
Two years on the place is in ruins
Raymond Archer, one of the evicted tenants at the Trade Fair Centre, has indicated that Daniel McKorley, alias McDan, destroyed their thriving business two years ago.
Speaking to GhanaWeb, the journalist turned businessman indicated that after spending money to the tune of $10 million, it took a fellow businessman like McDan to bulldoze his investment within one night.
He said, while he was destroying businesses at the Trade Fair, McDan was building his business at the airport using state resources.
“We had a thriving business that had won the hearts of many international businesses across Africa and just to leave it in ruins, just the viciousness of it is what I still can’t get over almost two years later. The viciousness of which a fellow businessman will wake up, take a bulldozer, go to his fellow businessman’s factory and bulldoze it down and then you see what is happening now, he is building at the airport but bulldozing other businesses down,” Archer lamented.
“He is building his aviation business at an airport that was constructed by the government of Ghana and he renovated it for himself but in my case, I built everything from scratch, and yet he thought because his government was in power, he would demolish it,” he added.
