The Ghana Union of Traders Association (GUTA), has declared that it will sign a social contract with political leaders vying for the presidency in 2025. This agreement would be based on their economic policies and manifesto commitments.
President of the Association, Dr. Joseph Obeng, indicated that the decision is to ensure that the business community and Ghanaians hold the next president accountable.
Speaking to the GNA, he said GUTA has observed that presidential candidates are beginning to listen to and align with the requirements of the business community in their visions.
Dr. Obeng added that the business sector is interested in policies which, when implemented, would support business growth while contributing to revenue generation through taxation and job creation for the youth. He encouraged all political parties and their leaders, as well as individual aspirants, to extensively engage the association to incorporate their needs in their manifestos.
