The Savelugu market is in so much disarray, no drainage systems and rubbish are scattered all round. Business at the market always comes to halt during raining days.
Traders at the market have to relocate outside the market to the lorry Park due to the unbearable stench of wee smokes inside the market.
Speaking to Savanna24news.com, some the traders said, it is very difficult to trade inside the market, “inside the market is not safe for us, because our sheds have been used as ghetto base”
