Accra, July 6, GNA – The executives of the
Dome Market Traders Association have said they have the right to collect levies
from their members and this does not contravene any law.

They said the Association is duly registered
with the Registrar General’s Department and nobody or entity can stop them from
exercising their rights.

Madam Evelyn Abena Asibie, a spokesperson for
the traders, said this at a news conference organised by the Association at
Dome in the Ga East Municipality.

She said the Association had no problems with
the collection of levies by the Assembly from the traders whilst they could not
be stopped from collecting membership levies to support their social activities
including the Dome Stool Land Administration.

“We have co-existed peacefully at the market
for years as we are there to sell to make a living and we won’t allow anyone to
divide us,” she said.

Madam Asibie said they have many problems at
the market and appealed to the Assembly to help ensure that the situation is amicably
resolved.

The traders who wore red arm-band expressed
their disapproval of an alleged act to replace members of the executives of the
Association.

They said any such move would be contrary to
their constitution.
