Listen To Article

The leadership of Nigerian Union Traders Association of Ghana (NUTAG) has called on the Ghanaian government to make spell out their fate to them because they cannot continue to stay jobless in the country and be dying of hunger

The NUTAG branch in Kumasi in the Ashanti Region says their members have been targeted by the Committee on Foreigners in Retail mandated to crackdown on foreigners engaged in illegal retailing business in the country.

According Chairman of the Nigerian union traders, Chief Kizito Obiora Ikechukwu, all the 92 shops locked up by the committee belongs to Nigerians and no other foreign national shop has been locked up.

Speaking on Opemsuo FM monitored by MyNewsGh.com, Chief Kizito Obiora Ikechukwu, said some of their members have their documents intact and showed to the committee but they still locked up their shops.

He therefore called on the Nigerian government liaise with the Ghanaian government in order to come to their aid

“Some team of government inter-ministerial taskforce visited our business places and closed all Nigerian shops. Why I say Nigerian shops is that to the best of our knowledge and per our records, they have never visited any foreigner as far as Ashanti is concerned, only Nigerians”, he bemoaned

“At the moment, the 91 shops closed down are all totally owned by Nigerians. That’s why we think it will be good to let the whole world know, especially our own Nigerian government, our hard-working president Buhari to quickly come to our aid because we are dying of hunger. We are dying here in Ghana” He lamented.
