Should The Government Of Ghana Close Down Worldwide Health Limited - And Deport All Its Expatriate Staff?

Is the Indian-owned locally registered company, Worldwide Health Limited (WHL),  attempting to sabotage the businesses of its Ghanaian competitors, as some in the pharmaceutical sector claim?

Critics of WHL accuse it  of sabotaging the businesses  of its Ghanaian competitors to enable it end up  having a stranglehold on the market for medical drugs manufactured by the multinational pharmaceutical company, GlaxoSmithKline Plc (GSK), in Ghana.

Whatever be the case, the reality is that at the end of the day, no matter what the motives of the Indian owners of Worldwide Health Limited actually are, the outcome of their dealings with GlaxoSmithKline Export Limited - the privately-owned UK wholesaler of the pharmaceutical products of the listed London Stock Exchange (LSE) quoted manufacturer of pharmaceutical products, GloxoSmithKline Plc - is that it will have a stranglehold on the market in Ghana for medical drugs produced by GlaxoSmithKline Plc.

That is intolerable and unacceptable in this day and age. In effect, the Indian  owners of Worldwide Health Limited, are abusing our hospitality - and that is unpardonable and monstrous.

For that reason, their trojan-horse-business must be closed down immediately by the government for attempting to make Ghana dependent on foreigners for the supply of a range of pharmaceutical products either manufactured locally under license, or manufactured overseas in the UK, and elsewhere, by the multinational company GlaxoSmithKline Plc.

We have culled and posted below,  the UK  Companies House details of that privately-owned GlaxoSmithKline Export Limited, and the London Stock Exchange  (LSE) details of the multinational drugs manufacturer, GlaxoSmithKline Plc, respectively.

In this blog's humble view there is only one way to resolve this logic-defying attempt at holding our nation's healthcare system to ransom.

The work and residence permits of all the expatriates working in Ghana for GSK Ghana and that cheeky Indian company, Worldwide Healthcare  Limited, must be immediately revoked on national security grounds: and all of them deported to their home countries within 72 hours.

It is obvious that Worlwide Health Limited  has  worked closely with GSK Ghana Limited to create an opportunity to enable WHL  eventually import GSK drugs form India and elsewhere  into Ghana as a monopoly business - as part of a grand WHL strategy to dominate emerging markets in sub-Saharan Africa.

No Ghanaian company will ever be allowed to behave in such a disrespectful and unethical manner in India  - without its Ghanaian executives being swiftly deported from India: the moment that Ghanaian company's Indian competitors notified the authorities there.

This is a stealth pre-emptive strike by Worldwide Health Limited to make Ghana dependent on Indian and other foreign drug manufacturers. It is an abominable and unpardonable outrage - and unspeakable. The government of Ghana must act quickly in this matter - and throw all the expatriates working for GSK Ghana and Worldwide Health Limited out of the country.  Enough is enough. Haaba.

This  move by GSK Ghana and Worldwide Health Limited amounts to waging economic warfare on Ghana no less - and  the Ghanaian media must not sit unconcerned and allow greedy and arrogant individuals (who might even be closet foreign racists for all we know) to toy with our sovereignty and our nation's security so brazenly.

For the benefit of this blog's  readers, below are the culled UK Companies House details of the privately-owned  wholesaler, GlaxoSmithKline Export Limited - and those of the LSE quoted  multinational drugs manufacturer GlaxoSmithKline Plc.
