Stop GUTA members from attacking us – Nigerian traders beg Akufo-Addo


The President of the Nigerian Union of Traders Association in Ghana (NUTAG), Chief Chukuemeka Nnaji has appealed to the President of the Republic of Ghana, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to intervene in the recent disagreements between them and some Ghanaian traders.

Some Nigerian traders have been the subject of attack by some Ghanaian traders mostly members of the Ghana Union Traders Association (GUTA).

The GUTA members and their executives have accused the government of failing to implement a GIPC act which bars foreigners from participating in retail trade.

This, the Nigerian traders at a press conference said is not the best and has thus called on the President of Ghana to intervene.

According to Mr Nnaji, when the GNPC Law, Act 865, Article 27 to 28 of 2013 is harmonized, it will help end the brutal blackmailing by GUTA members in Ghana.

He further stated that, it is about time the President of Ghana and his administration order GUTA to stop perpetrating their unlawful attacks on NUTAG members.

Chief Nnaji also expressed disappointment in the unlawful treatment from members of the GUTA describing it as an infringement of their human rights.

He therefore explained that GUTA has been unfair to the Nigerian traders as according to him Ghanaian traders in Nigeria have never been treated badly.

He further called on the Ghana Police to cause the arrest of GUTA members who forcibly closed down some shops owned by Nigerian traders.
