Laweh Open University College hosts consumer rights day event

Come Thursday, March 15, Consumer Rights Advocates in Ghana under the aegis of Consumer Advocacy Centre will converge at the cozy multipurpose conference hall of the Laweh Open University College to celebrate the 2018 World Consumer Rights Day (WCRD).

The purpose of the gathering is to promote digital marketplaces that are more accessible, safer and fairer for consumers across the globe. This is in accordance with the international theme for the celebration: Making Digital Marketplaces Fairer.

Prof. Goski Alabi, President of the Consumer Advocacy Centre, in an invite to participants, stated that the gathering would deliberate on two key issues: (i) Fraud and Reliability of Digital Money Transactions; and (ii) Monitoring and Bugging of Telephony Communication and Stealing of Mobile Data in Ghana.

Prof Alabi describes the topics as “important and trending consumer issues” whose discussion will help shape government policy.

WCRD offers the chance to deliver real impact for consumers and remind the world about the importance of observing and enforcing consumer rights.

Instituted in 1983, the WCRD is an annual event celebrated all over the world by Consumer Organizations on every 15th March with the purpose of sensitizing consumers on their basic rights and their responsibilities. On the day, the global consumer movement unites around a common theme to deliver an exciting array of campaigning activities.
