The Communication for Development and Advocacy Consult has engaged media practitioners in Ho as part of its nationwide public education to stop the proliferation of fake electrical products on the Ghanaian market.

The initiative dubbed, “Avoid Patronage of Counterfeit Electrical Products,” seeks to create awareness of dangers associated with patronising such products.

The Executive Director of CDA Consult, Francis Ameyibor, urged journalists to promote the use of genuine products as part of their role as gatekeepers of society. He encouraged them to educate the public on the need to buy electrical products from reputable sources.

Mr. Ameyibor said research has proven that the use of fake electrical products among the citizenry is on the increase and expressed worry about its negative effects on the country's economic growth. He therefore called for all hands to be on deck to deal with the situation.
