Government urged to make clearing of goods easy
Agona Swedru, July 29, Ghanadot/GNA
– Mr. Joe De-Graft, Chief Executive Officer of the Ghana
Cargo Groupage Container, a German-based Freight Handling
Company, has appealed to the government to make clearing of
goods at Ghanaian ports easy.
Mr. De-Gratf said this could be done by removing some of the
bureaucratic processes importers had to go through before
clearing their goods.
Speaking to the GNA at Agona Swedru, the CEO said Ghanaian
ports were congested because of the long processes one had
to go through in clearing goods.
Recounting the cumbersome procedure his benefactor went
through in bringing some items into the country from Germany
for donation to a church, Mr. De-Graft said if the clearing
procedure was not made less cumbersome, it could discourage
a lot of philanthropists from bringing in items to support
the needy in the society.
“Our people need some items from outside to ease their
living conditions. If the clearing can be made a bit easier,
a lot of our well-wishers abroad can ship some relief items
to our people”, he said.
Mr. De-Graft, who is also a scout for football talents for
some clubs in Germany, described football as a very
lucrative job these days and appealed to parents to
encourage and support their children to go into the game.
He said he was ready to help footballers who wanted to play
The Rev. Dr. Obed Ahenafo, Founder and Leader of the Christ
Abiding Ministry, and a friend to Mr. De-Graft, appealed to
donor agencies for support for the ministry in its effort to
establish a vocational training institute for the youth in
the Agona District.
