This comes after butchers in the Region’s old abattoir refused to move from the place with the excuse that yorogo is far from town and they were not consulted by the Assembly before the decision to relocate them.
The butchers subsequently have gone on an indefinite strike making access to meat in the Upper East regional capital uneasy.
They have insisted that they will only agree to move to yorogo if only the animal market is also relocated to yorogo.
But the Assembly in a letter dated 21st January, 2022 announced that it is employing the services of butchers for the yorogo abattoir.
This is to make up for butchers who are on strike and also get the facility to be operational since the butchers occupying the old abattoir have decided not to heed to moves to get them out of the facility that has some structural defects and accompanied environmental conditions.
The application according to the Assembly are to be submitted on or before Friday 28th January, 2022.
