The Greater Accra branch of the Ghana Union of Traders Associations (GUTA) has broken away from the national group.

Some of the breakaway group have then formed a new association known as the Traders Advocacy Group Ghana (TAGG), with at least five of the eight executives of the defunct Greater-Accra Regional GUTA joining.

Head of the new group, David Kojo Amoateng said the decision to create the advocacy group is because of the restrictions in the mandate of GUTA.

It is also emerging that five other regions have expressed readiness to also break away from the national association.

“Now traders are calling us from all corners of Ghana willing to associate themselves with TAGG. Greater-Accra GUTA is no more, TAG has come to stay,” he said

Mr. Amoateng who was one time the National Deputy Public Relations Officer (PRO) and Greater-Accra Regional Chairman of GUTA, lamented that no GUTA member has a membership card for more than 30 years of its existence.

He also claimed that GUTA has never expressed satisfaction about any success that the regional branch chalks.

“In this country, we have freedom of association and so if you have a vision and you know where you are going and someone is pulling you back, the best thing is for you to move on – so we have now moved on to become TAGG”, Mr. Amoateng maintained.

Meanwhile, earlier, the GUTA national executive and council of elders issued a statement indicating that the Greater-Accra executive have been dissolved.
