Kofi Kapito Wusu-Hene, CEO, Consumer Protection Agency

Consumer Agency demands refunds for bounced visas
The Consumer Protection Agency (CPA) is
threatening a demonstration should government
refuse to address issues of unfair treatment meted
out to Ghanaians at the various embassies within
twenty one working days.

The CPA also wants huge visa fees charged
Ghanaians to be refunded to them if they are
refused Visas by the embassies.

Citing various embassies such as the American
Embassy, Canadian High Commission as well as the
British High Commission as culprits, the CPA added
that the treatment meted out to Ghanaians is an
infringement on the rights of individuals and must
not be tolerated.

Addressing a press conference in Accra, the Chief
Executive Officer of the Consumer Protection
Agency, Kofi Kapito Wusu-Hene said government must
immediately address the issue within the twenty
one days to avoid a protest by them.

” To my fellow Ghanaians, if you don’t hear
anything proper from the Ministry of Foreign
Affairs, I am urging Ghanaians please, you should
demonstrate peacefully, to let them know that in
Ghana they cannot infringe upon our rights. So
this is where I am pleading with Ghanaians,” he
said.

He added that “The CPA is giving the foreign
ministry twenty one days to at least respond to
the letter given to them. As to what they are
doing for us Ghanaians to know that our government
is working on our behalf.”

He also expressed frustration at the embassies’
decision to make application of visas solely
online.

According to him, over 80% of Ghanaians are still
not technologically inclined.

He believes the Ministry of Foreign Affairs must
step in to avert the decision.

The government should prevail on them for them to
bring back the opportunity for you to pay at the
bank or choose to pay with a credit card.”
