GUTA President
November 16, 2022

President of the Ghana Union of Traders Association (GUTA) Dr. Joseph Kwaku Obeng has said the association is not political as being perceived by some Ghanaians due to the conduct of some of its members whenever there is change of governments.

According to him the fact that some of its members at Abosokai who are predominantly NPP supporters and chose to reduce their prices for NPP coming to power does not make GUTA politically affiliated.

And the same way when NDC wins power you go to Ho market or Tamale market because predominantly they are NDC supporters, they also jubilate does not make the association NDC.

Dr. Joseph Obeng who lamented over the fact that the Association is painted with political colours made this remarks on Tuesday, November 15, 2022 when the association met with the Committee on Trade  Industry and Tourism in Parliament to discuss the way forward in the wake of price hikes and high inflation rates that makes doing business difficult.

 Present at the meeting were Association of Ghana Industries and Ghana National Chamber of Commerce and Industry.

Deputy Minister of Trade and Industry Michael Okyere Baafi, who was also present at the engagement was happy with the stakeholders’ engagement and noted that the meeting was fruitful and encourages more interaction between the Committee and industry players.
