Members of the Ghana Union of Traders Association (GUTA) have threatened to fiercely oppose any attempt by the Government to review the Ghana Investment Promotion Centre (GIPC) law to allow foreigners in the retail markets to continue their business. 

The National Organiser of GUTA and Chairman for the AbosseyOkai Spare Parts Dealers Association, Mr. Samuel Boateng at a Press Conference in Accra disclosed that they have had reliable information about how the authorities are scheming to overturn the law to favour the foreigners. 

The GUTA members who have given 14 days’ ultimatum to the Government to fully implement or enforce the GIPC law which bars foreigners from engaging in retail business, said they could no longer share the retail space with foreigners. 

They asserted that there are over four (4) million Nigerians in Ghana who are selling ‘inferior goods’ at ‘cheap prices’ which is killing local businesses of indigenes. 

According to them, they have come to the realization that both past and present governments had all neglected them in their fight for fairness in the past twenty (20) years.

The Public Relations Officer for Ghana Electrical Dealers Association (GEDA) Samuel Asare Addo addressing the press said they back their fellow traders in Kumasi for their recent actions against some Nigerian traders and threatened the government to expect more of such actions from them if the law was not enforced within the next nine (9) days.
