A trader from Yeji expressed anger after realising that he was tricked into buying a baby lotion for GHS70 at Kumasi in the Ashanti instead of a hand sanitizer.
He came to the realization after encountering the Citi News team covering the disinfection exercise at the Adabraka Market on Monday, March 23, 2020.
After Citi News’ team gave him some drops of sanitizers to protect him from COVID-19, the trader was furious at how he had been misled.
“This feels different from what I have. No matter the cost, I would not have bought the sanitizer. I do not know what a sanitizer is and the seller should have explained to me that the product was not a hand sanitizer. I bought it because I wanted to protect myself. I will now have to stop using it because there is no point. I would not have realised it if you did not inform me,” he complained.
Sanitizers are on high demand around the world, given that it is believed to reduce the risk of catching certain infections including COVID-19.
