Small scale rice dealers to demonstrate

The Small Scale Rice Dealers Association of Ghana (SSRIDA), on Saturday announced plans to stage a protest against the Ministry of Trade and Industry.

The demonstration scheduled for Tuesday, September 2 at 0900 hours is as a result of several appeals to the authorities to reopen the Sampa post in the Brong Ahafo Region for members to do business.

A letter signed by Mr Yaw Korang, Coordinator, SSRIDA-GH said: “ Even a directive by the then Minister of Trade, Mr Haruna Iddrisu on July 17 to open the border post and lift the ban on inland importation of rice has been grossly treated with contempt,”.

He said as law-abiding citizens, members are ready for instructions for a peaceful, well-organised and successful demonstration.

Members are expected to converge at Obra Spot at the Kwame Nkrumah Circle before proceeding to the Ministry.
