The National Association of Beautician and Hairdressers (NABH) is calling on the government to establish for the association a regulatory body to oversee the activities of their sector.
This was discussed during the 9th edition of the annual beauty academy held at the University of Ghana.
Speaking at the opening ceremony of the four days’ camp aimed at addressing the plight of members of the Association, President of the Association, Mrs. Joyce Lamptey explained that, the cases and numerous complaints of acts of injustice, disputes and abuse of labor that exists in the sector would clamp down should the association have a regulatory body.
“I believe that if we had a regulatory body, like how the media had media commission and other businesses have their regulatory bodies, I believe an end would be put to all cases of reported conflicts because all our activities would be monitored”
She further called on the government to ensure a strict enforcement of the tax exemption policy for young entrepreneurs especially for beauticians and head dressers.
“I am aware there is a rule by government that young entrepreneurs below the age of 35 years should enjoy a tax holiday for five years but we are not seeing anything. The authorities ensure it works.” she said
The annual Beautician Academy conference is an event organized to celebrate and address issues facing members. The occasion also serves as a congregation ceremony for beauticians who are done with their studies.
