Nkwanta South traders bemoan curfew over ethnic conflict

The Nkwanta South Traders Association has urged the Interior Ministry to reassess the curfew imposed on their township, citing adverse effects on their businesses.

Mr. Richard Owusu Ansah (Paa Rich), the Secretary of the Association, expressed concerns over the current curfew schedule, which runs from 1700 to 0600 hours, attributing it to the ongoing ethnic conflict.

He highlighted the significant impact on business activities in Nkwanta South and neighboring areas since November 2023, with approximately 14 fatalities and extensive property damage recorded.

The traders emphasized the necessity of revising the curfew to facilitate a return to normal business operations, noting the stark transformation of the once bustling business center into a desolate environment.

During their presentation of food items to security agencies as a gesture of support for peacekeeping efforts in the Nkwanta South Municipality, the traders voiced their appeal for a reconsideration of the curfew.

Chief Superintendent Michael Asiedu, the Divisional Police Commander, received the donation and lauded the traders for their contribution. He reiterated the commitment of the police and other security forces to diligently work towards restoring peace in the area.
