During Monday’s session, the Minority Leader in Parliament, Dr. Cassiel Ato Forson, disclosed that Unilever Ghana has opted to transfer its tea production operations to Nigeria, citing the prevailing economic difficulties in Ghana. He made this revelation in light of President Akufo-Addo’s 2024 State of the Nation address presented to Parliament in February.

Mr. Forson, who represents Ajumako Enyan Essiam, warned that other companies might follow suit due to the country’s ongoing economic challenges. Expressing his apprehensions about the management of the country under the Akufo-Addo government, Dr. Ato Forson emphasized the alarming trend of businesses relocating and urged Ghanaians to be concerned.

As a former Deputy Finance Minister, Dr. Ato Forson’s comments highlight the growing unease regarding Ghana’s economic stability and its potential repercussions on local enterprises.

“Again, Mr Speaker, Unilever Ghana, which has for a very long time been producing its famous Lipton tea in Ghana, has stopped its tea production here. Unilever has relocated its tea production to Nigeria.”

“We have lost jobs by exporting the Lipton tea production to Nigeria. This is bad news for Ghanaian employees.”

“Again, Mr Speaker, Unilever Ghana has not been able to commence its Pepsodent production in Ghana after President Akufo-Addo commissioned the plant, five years ago. This is as a result of the worsening business environment.”
