According to GUTA, though prior to the elections they met with the NPP and discussed their concerns which saw most captured in the party’s manifesto, it was imperative that the Nana Akuffo Addo led – administration acted quick to save the ailing trading market.

Speaking to the thebftonline.com an Executive Member of GUTA, Benjamin Yeboah said the government with the majority in parliament must pass policies that will engineer economic growth and create employment.

“Though they came and solicited from us the challenges we face we think the time has come for them to now keep their side of the bargain by fulfilling their promise. We appreciate that fact that most of the issues we raised with the party when they visited us found its way into their manifesto. This means they are committed to correcting some of the challenges we face.”

“So with them now coming into power, we are very hopeful that all those things that we sort to have corrected, which we felt was not helping the business community and which we started making a lot of noise last year, February, they will take it up and then work on it,” he said.

Mr Yeboah also added that with their being very high, one of the things they also wanted addressed was the tax stamp, which the Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA) had wanted to implement.
