Ghana Prostitutes : Nigeria Ashawo & Opio must Go !

Kumasi Sex Workers Angry Over Nigeria’s ‘Ashawos’

"We cannot allow Nigeria to take over everything in the country including the sex trade,”

Ghanaian girls who offer sex for money at Adum, a suburb of Kumasi in the Ashanti region, have expressed anger over some Nigerians importing
younger and prettier girls who are gradually taking over the sex

If not for the intervention of the assembly member for the area, Albert Osei-Banahene, the enraged sex workers would have hit the streets in their nakedness and marched from
one office building to another, just to get the authorities to come to
their aide...

“It is not that they are better than us in bed but as you know, most men prefer younger girls and these Nigerian girls are younger. Some are still in their teens and
their agents protect them but we do not have agents who make things
easier for us so the conditions of work are not fair. “We would start
attacking any underage ashawo from Nigeria because they are spoiling the
market,” one of them noted. Interestingly, though both groups are
prostituting, the Ghanaian girls say they are commercial sex workers
while the Nigerians are ‘ashawos.’

According to the Ghanaian sex workers, the arrival of sexier girls from Nigeria is making business very competitive and compelling them to lower their
rates or lose customers. Not pleased about the development, the
disillusioned sex workers have declared their preparedness to hit the
streets, should authorities fail to respond to their call and put in
place appropriate measures to arrest the worrying situation. In an
interview with NEWS-ONE, the stationed sex workers revealed that some
Nigerians living in Kumasi have made it their business of bringing in
very pretty sex workers from the oil-rich country to practice their
trade in the Ghana.

“Having realized the potential in the business, some Nigerians living in the city have decided to make it their business by bringing sex workers from their country to come and
work here,” one of the disgruntled sex workers observed. “When they
bring them, they initially put them in hotels, before hiring rooms for
them to practice their trade but we do not have agents or promoters so
we are losing the market even in our own country,” another dissatisfied
sex worker noted.

According to them, they would do everything within their means to ensure that the practice was stopped, because they believe that as Ghanaians, they have exclusive right to the

“We cannot allow Nigeria to take over everything in the country including the sex trade,” the sex workers emphasized. The assembly member for the area, Hon
Albert Osei-Banahene, who has being appealing to the sex workers to
remain calm, appealed to the government to take up the matter and ensure
that it is resolved amicably. He noted that it was important for the
government to come in strongly because of the ages of the girls who are
purported to have been sent into the city for sex trade.

What a shame to even bring this kind of story to the opprobrium for a debate. It stinks to the high heaven. Those who engage in it are nothing more than the rich one taking advantage of the little ones in the name of making them a big stars and at the end to turn them into a prostitutes. It was never their fault,but the government that be. Our liberalism has been compromised by money and lose cannon sibling we're raising who knows nothing than the music of am big only to regret it at the end. Now we can see where the issue I raised come handy as to why we're where we're. It's a live wire and too hot to handle was the reason why it got only three responses. I wouldn't like to dominate the debate was the reason why it wasn't review or updated.

The authorities involved in human trafficking should move in with full force and ensure that their sponsors are arrested

To me this is very worrisome, i won't make conclusions because their ages were not mentioned, but i hope this is not one of the numerous cases of child trafficking.
