The MCE for Bolgatanga Rex Asanga has said the delay in relocating the abattoir to the ultra-modern facility at Yorogo, a suburb of the Bolgatanga Municipality has been brought about by the unavailability of engineers to retrain and oversee the usage of the equipment at the facility.
Speaking on A1 Radio’s Day Break Upper East, Mr. Asanga explained that the Assembly wants to prevent a situation whereby the facility would be put to use without the necessary technical supervisory roles to be played by some engineers.

The MCE said should the engineers come and train the users of the facility on the use and maintenance of the facility, the abattoir would be relocated immediately. He explained that the butchers have agreed fully to move the abattoir.
It would be recalled that butchers reached an agreement to move to the Yorogo facility by January 1, 2022 after the initial December 15, 2021 deadline. Meanwhile, the Secretary of the Bolgatanga Butchers Association Timothy Yinbil rubbished certain media reports that the butchers had reneged on their agreement with the Assembly.
