The Consumer Protection Agency (CPA) has threatened a demonstration in 21 days should government refuse to address issues of unfair treatment meted out to Ghanaians at the various embassies.
Speaking to Kwabena Agyapong sit-in host of Frontline on Rainbow Radio 87.5fm, Executive Director of CPA, Kofi Capito was of the view that huge visa fees charged Ghanaians must be be refunded to them if they are refused Visas by the embassies.
According to him, the treatment meted out to Ghanaians by some of the embassies including the American Embassy, Canadian High Commission as well as the British High Commission is an infringement on the rights of individuals and must be condemned.
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.’’
“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.”
