GSA expands operations to Damango and Gambaga


The Ghana Standards Authority (GSA), in a bid to extend its operations across the country, has opened two new offices at Gambaga and Damango in the North-East and Savannah Regions respectively.

During the Gambaga Office commissioning, Deputy Director-General in charge of Conformity Assessment-GSA, Mr. Clifford Frimpong, stated that establishing the office underscores the Authority’s mission to support local businesses and boost economic growth.

“GSA’s mandate covers every Ghanaian irrespective of the region and location. Gambaga is a very vibrant community where business is booming, hence the need to establish our presence and assist businesses here to thrive,” he said.

The Chief Director-North-East Region, Alhaji Mohammed Tando, said people of the region are happy that the GSA has recognised their community by setting up an office to help regulate and standardise their businesses.

In Damango, Mrs. Adiza Bukari and Mr. Abdul Abubakar represented the Savannah Chief Director at the GSA’s new office commissioning.

Mrs. Adiza noted that the exercise was long overdue, and that having GSA’s presence in the region will attract other agencies to join them in helping project it and making their businesses thrive.

She added that GSA should be patient with her constituents and help them embrace the concept of standardisation to enable them produce quality products.

The office’s commissioning was attended by some senior management members and staff of the Authority – including Mr. Douglas Nii Teiko, Director of Administration and Mr. George Anti, Head of the Special Projects Unit,

The rest include Mr. Abubakar Abdullai, Director of Regional Operations; Mrs. Joyce Chiradam, Tamale Regional Manager; Mr. Kofi Yeboah Debrah, Acting Head of Public Relations, and some staff members from the GSA’s Tamale office.
