Leaders of the Association have alleged that some spare parts dealers at Suame have resorted in assaulting the Nigerian counterparts in a way of kicking out the foreign traders.
At a press conference on Wednesday, the regional chairman of GNAG, Nana Osei Bonsu, said though they fully support the government’s decision to bar foreigners from retail business; they distaste the dastard behavior taken by the locals to beat the foreign traders, saying that could lead to unanticipated repercussions.
“We want the enforcement to be devoid of violent attacks by the spare parts dealers. If a law is enforced on the land, we have security agencies that ensure that particular law is enforced and not the locals,” the Ashanti regional chairman of GNAG bemoaned.
“As custodian of magazine lands, we don’t support the kind of action taken by the Ghanaian traders in Suame Magazine since they don’t have the right to take the law into their hands, he added
The Association has advised the government to take proper measures in solving the emanating problem carefully since there are many Ghanaians in Nigeria also doing retailing and other businesses.
