Some traders at Tiptoe Lane near the Kwame Nkrumah Circle Interchange in Accra clashed Tuesday after some six assailants alleged to be Nigerians broke into several Ghanaian-owned shops at dawn.
The irate Ghanaian traders, some of whom have had their shops broken into, expressed frustrations to TV3‘s Solace-Rose Quartey, calling on the government to immediately implement the GIPC Law 2013.
“The law must work, that’s all what we are asking for, the GIPC 2017(sic) that prohibits foreigners from working in the market must work,” a representative of the aggrieved Ghanaian traders demanded.
The said law bars foreign nationals from engaging in retail business in the country.
Section 27 (1) of the GIPC Law 2013, (Act 865) states: “A person who is not a citizen or an enterprise which is not wholly owned by a citizen shall not invest or participate in the sale of goods or provision of services in a market, petty trading or hawking or selling of goods in a stall at any place.”
