The Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA) has asked its Customs Divisions in border towns to enforce the ban on the exportation of cereals.
A memorandum signed by the Assistant Commissioner of the Authority to station heads in Tatale, Wonjuga, Bunkpurugu and Saboba stated that grains and soya beans are to be sold to local buyers instead.
“You are to comply with the government’s directive to prevent the exportation of the aforementioned items with immediate effect.
You are to direct to sell to the local buyers instead,” the statement concluded.
The government in May, extended a ban on the export of some grains.
These included rice and maize to ensure food security as Russia’s war with Ukraine disrupted global food supply chains.
The ban, which took effect in September 2021, was due to expire at the end of March but was extended to September 2022.
This was to ensure that enough grains were available within the country to boost the country’s local poultry and livestock production.
