All Die Na Die’, Defend Yourselves – Nigerian Trade Union President In Ghana by temptnow: 6:24am On Jul 30, 2020
The President of the Nigeria Union of Traders Association (NUTAG), Mr Chwukuemeka Nnaji, has said he is ready to die to protect his shop as well as several others belonging to Nigerians from being closed by members of the Abossey Okai Spare Parts Dealers Association.

It follows the closure of 150 Nigerian shops at Abossey Okai in Accra on Wednesday, 29 July 2020.

Mr Nnaji told Class News in an interview that: “I think enough is enough, we are not going to take it anymore”.

“As the national President of [NUTAG], I’m commanding Nigerians to defend themselves from anybody, from any GUTA or any association. We are here legally. Travelling or migration is not a crime”, he said, adding: “And I’m saying it on top of my voice because there are a lot of millions of Ghanaians living in Nigeria, doing businesses and nobody is challenging them”.

“Why are they closing our shops every day?” he asked.

“They have no right to do that. I’m ready now to die because ‘all die is die’. I’m going to die now”, he fumed.

“Let them come and kill me. This must stop. I’ve been here for over 25 years and I’m ready now to face them. Where are they? Let them come”, he dared.

He continued: “Listen, if the government of Ghana decides that Nigerians should go, there’s a protocol of ECOWAS that says: ‘Do not halt any member citizens; if you want to deport him, deport him legally, honourably, let him go home and stay’. We are ready to go home. We come from a country. I think they are taking us for granted and that is the end of the matter now.

“If anybody comes here to kill me, I’m ready to die. They will not close this shop and I’m waiting for the commander to give instructions … I’m going to command the Nigerian shops to reopen and if anything happens to any Nigerian in Ghana, listen, I’m going to take it out from the executive of GUTA, I’m going to tackle it from the executives of the Abossey Okai Association; Mr Boateng and Akonta will be the number one culprits”, he threatened.

According to him, he pays his taxes, noting that he had to pay some GHS500,000 to the Ghanaian authorities to release his merchandise at some point in time.

“I’m tired of living in this country in this illegality … it should stop now”, he said.

Meanwhile, the Abossey Okai Spare Parts Dealers Association is calling on the government to implement the Ghana Investment Promotion Centre (GIPC) Act, GIPC Act, 2013 (Act 865), to prevent foreigners in the country from engaging in retail trade.

The group wants the Presidential Committee on Retail Trade set up by the government to vet the operating documents of foreigners in the retail business to do its job properly.

The Co-Chairman of the Association, Nana Kwabena Peprah told journalists that: “We know how even the law allows a foreigner to apply in retail trade. They go through a process of registering at the GIPC for a certificate and where they can ply their trade. No trader in Ghana speaks against Melcom, Max Mart, and other retail outlets. It is simply because they are going through the rules that govern trading in Ghana. All that we are saying is that the GIPC law is implemented because the current situation is affecting us”.

What Ghana's laws say:

Section 28 of the GIPC law says:

(1) A person who is not a citizen may participate in an enterprise specified in Section 27 if that person (a) in the case of a joint enterprise with a partner who is a citizen, invests a foreign capital of not less than $200,000 in cash or capital goods relevant to the investment or a combination of both by way of equity participation, and the partner, who is a citizen, does not have less than 10 per cent equity participation in the joint enterprise; or (b) where the enterprise is wholly owned by that person, invests a foreign capital of not less than $500,000 in cash or capital goods relevant to the investment or a combination of both by way of equity capital in the enterprise.

(2) A person who is not a citizen may engage in a trading enterprise if that person invests in the enterprise, not less than $1million in cash or goods and services relevant to the investments

Nonsense. They will be slaughtered like rams because they're heavily outnumbered.

Is it by force to trade in Ghana? Can't they come back and manage in Nigeria or better still try other non hostile countries.

Ghana has made it clear in more than 10 years now that they don't want Nigerians. Why force yourselves on them.

Can Ghanaians in Nigeria doing business afford to deposit $500,000 us dollars to our own government before they can do their businesses in Nigeria?

Nigerian embassies in Africa clearly don't know their jobs, perhaps they're only their to receive huge monthly salary for doing nothing. Chinese and Indians are doing retail business in Ghana but they're not been harassed by Ghanaian government.

A typical Ghanaian is still hurt over Ghana must go. Meanwhile, I had on arise news TV that they were the one that first drive Nigerians away in the 1960s.

Why are they closing shops that belong to only Igbo traders.


Are the Igbos overbearing?

Why are they "marginalizing" Igbos even in Ghana?

What is it about Igbos that many people tend to hate them?

Is it because of their egoistic and arrogance nature?

These are some questions that need answers.

So , after reading the article with understanding that these Igbos are there legally the only input you could afford was to find a stuppid fault in the Igbo man based on your hate towards them. Hate will be your portion !!
