BREAKING NEWS : Ghana Police Intervenes As GUTA and Nigerians aggressively Clash At Circle Over Reopening Of Shops- VIDEO

Sometime back in December 2019, Ghanaian traders clashed with their Nigerian counterparts at the Kwame Nkrumah circle and it was one hell of a scene that led some traders injured in the process. All our Ghanaian brothers are saying is that they want the government to enforce the GIPC Act which bars foreigners from engaging in the retail business in the country.

As a result of the clash which went on, Nigerian shops at Kwame Nkrumah circle dealing in retails were closed down and the Members of the Ghana Union of Traders Association (GUTA) outlined the conditions under which they were going to open the locked shops belonging to the foreigners.

Section 27 of the GIPC Act, 865 prohibits foreigners from engaging in retail business in Ghana. The sale of anything in the market, petty trading, hawking or selling from a kiosk at any place is a wholly reserved activity for Ghanaians and GUTA has accused the government of failing to enforce the law.

In the latest development, reports have it that these Nigerians have taken the law into their own hands by going back to circle to reopen their shops without proper authorization. Some Ghanaians after realizing the act from Nigerians as a result of reopening their shops without proper authorization decided to do the right thing by forcefully closing back their shops. The timely intervention of the police brought the whole drama which was going to escalate into normalcy with Ghanaians calling on the government to act fast.
