The Human Rights Division of the High Court in Accra has ordered the National Biosafety Authority (NBA) to label all Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) on the market to enable the public make an informed choice.

The Court also directed that, the NBA should with immediate effect publish all data of all GMOs including the BT Cowpea products from Nigeria to enable easy identification.

The Court presided over by Justice Barbara Tetteh Charwey made this orders while delivering a judgment in a case in which the Food Sovereignty sued the National Biosafety Authority against the commercialization of genetically modified (GMO) foods in Ghana.

The Court while dismissing FSG’s has also directed the NBA to undertake a sensitisation exercise in all their areas to help the people know what is happening around them.
