HAS ANY AUTHORITY RESPONDED TO FOROYAA’S CALL FOR A CAMPAIGN FOR CONSUMER PROTECTION?

QUESTION OF THE DAY

The public should be informed that Foroyaa is currently identifying to train consumer protection journalists to carry out thorough investigation in all matters that affect food safety, food security and price stability. They will be uncompromising in carrying out their work.

Fortunately the Gambia Consumer and Competition Protection Commission (GCCPC) has raised its flag that it will not be found wanting in ensuring that the consumers are not put at a disadvantage. Foroyaa will soon start its day to day monitoring of the three elements of food safety, food security and price stability and thus enhance consumer protection.

Consumers should be ready to collaborate in giving evidence to enhance detection of malpractices. We anticipate that the GCCPC will enhance its awareness campaign to help consumers to know how to protect themselves from profiteers who show no respect of standard of good practice in salespersonship.
