Nigerian Traders Cry For Gov't Help Over Closure Of Shops

The Nigeria Union Traders Association of Ghana (NUTAG) is asking the Government to come clear on its plans concerning the closure of shops operated by its members.

About a month after the closure of the shops, the association is worried about the situation it claimed had brought untoward hardships on NUTAG members.

In a Citi News interview the General Secretary of the association, Comrade Everystus Nwankwor, said he government must make known its line of action regarding their issue so they can be advised.

“We do not have much to say about this other than opening the shops. It is like Ghanaians are disallowing Nigerians to trade. They should be bold enough. They are speaking in parables. They should come out and say that for the next month, we do not need Nigerians to trade but not use the word foreigners because that is deceptive. We know Togoleses, Burkinabes and Nigeriens who are doing business in Ghana and nobody touches them.”

NUTAG has also called on GUTA to come to the aid of its indigenous employees who have also been unemployed since the closure of its shops.

The two associations have been having running battles over the local retail space as the Ghanaian traders push for the enforcement of Ghana's laws that prohibit foreigners from engaging in retail trade.

Hundreds of shops owned by Nigerians have been locked up in a move by GUTA to clamp down on foreigners engaged in retail business against Ghanaian laws.

Local retailers in parts of Accra and Kumasi have in recent times locked up the foreign-owned shops, preventing foreigners from going about their business.

NUTAG appeals to Akufo-Addo to 'call GUTA to order'

The leadership NUTAG has also asked its members at the Tip-Toe Lane to remain calm as discussions continue to have their shops reopened.

All efforts according to them are being made to engage their Ghanaian counterparts to find a lasting solution to the current impasse.

It appealed to President Nana Akufo-Addo to immediately intervene in its ongoing brawl with the GUTA.

NUTAG said it has endured enough of what it describes as the consistent harassment of its members since 2007.

According to the Association, President Akufo-Addo must intervene for a re-look at the laws GUTA takes advantage of to harass them.

The Nigerian Traders are crying for President Buhari of Ghana to help them open their shops instead of considering taking their shops elsewhere?

It seems like the Nigerian traders at Kumasi are also not abiding with the local laws.. Nigerian traders in Accra most especially Circle and Mokola hardly have problems with GUTA...

Ghanian police and politicians are a useless bunch. They wont enforce said law. GUTA are fools for not making this a campaign issue for their 2020 elections. Lol those shops will be reopened like usual.

They should blame it on the administration in their country and it's useless foreign policies.
If I were Ghanaian, I'd have done worse.
Most of the traders in 'Makola' market are Igbos even.
Go to Circle and hear Igbo freely spoken in buses. Most fashion shops in Kumasi are owned by Yorubas, the currency changers and Sim sellers at Aflao speak Hausa.

Yet Baba thinks the world revolves around him. I wonder what the role of the Diaspora commission is even.

Ghanaians should lock up their stalls and send them back to Ogbete, Dugbe and Ochanja.
Nonsense.

Your President frigging closed the land border preventing Beninoise, Togolese and Ghanaians to freely trade in Nigeria and you expect to trade in these countries without being victimized.

No way.

International Relations teach that there is a ripple effect of the actions or inactions of a leader on the lives of his citizens in such countries.

Nigeria has failed you.

First, were they abiding with all the local laws of the land?

Nigerians are known to always cut corners by flaunting laws wherever they find themselves and call it "sharpness" or "smartness"


Secondly, your Buhari closed borders to these guys for whatever reason best known to him preventing them from trading in your country.

You see, sometimes "an eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth" make the world saner and peaceful.

I pity you traders in other countries. Nigeria has failed you people.
