Kofi Wayo calls for Hanna Tetteh’s removal
A Board Member of Energy Commission, Charles Kofi
Wayo has called on the President John Evans Atta
Mills to sack the Trade and Industry Minister
Kofi Wayo who doubles as the presidential
candidate for the United Renaissance Party said,
the Minister failed to consult the National
Security and other bodies before taking the
decision to close shops of foreigners who do
retail business in the country.
Speaking in an interview with Asempa fm’s Ekosii
Sen on Wednesday, Mr. Wayo stressed that “even the
timing of the exercise is wrong as the country is
heading towards our general elections.
"This will make President John Evans Atta Mills
feel bad and that of the National Democratic
Congress (NDC) as a whole", he said.
He noted that in the first place sacking foreign
retailers from the country is not the job of the
Ministry of Trade and Industry, “the job of her
Ministry is to create Industries in the country”,
and has therefore described the exercise by the
ministry as immature.
A task force under the ministry on Tuesday shut
down a number of retail shops owned by foreign
nationals close to market centres.
The exercise saw the closure of six shops
belonging to Chinese nationals at the Makola
market. The exercise is expected to be replicated
across the country.
