While authorities do their best to arrest QNet promoters, the pyramid scheme has the support of Ghana’s Ministry of Business Development.
In March 2021 Joe Tackie, Chief Director of the Ministry of Business Development, stated it was ‘glad to have QNET in Ghana for the long haul.’
Ghanaian authorities have petitioned the High Court to dissolve QNet nationally.
