Mr. Jibril Mohammed, the Chief Executive Officer of JBC 1 Group of Companies, has called for a concerted effort by public and private institutions to team up and work with civil society in Ghana to end the kayayei phenomenon.
He made the appeal during a ceremony to support the Kumasi-Kejetia Kayayei centre, and Breast cancer treatment program for Kejetia market women, under the leadership of breast surgeon, Mrs. Beatrice Wiafe, during the first week of every month at the centre.
According to him, for no mistake of theirs, they are worryingly found on the street, that’s why it’s necessary for all to extend support to the kayayei.
‘’Ghanaians shouldn’t underrate the risk of Covid-19, it’s real. Let’s sanitize and mask up’’ he advised the public, before receiving the COVID-19 awareness-vaccine artwork in appreciation for the company’s support.
