Maltreatment of Nigerians in Ghana receives harsh response from FG
The federal government of Nigeria through the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyeama has stated that it is weighing its options, over the closure of shops belonging to Nigerian traders in Ghana.
Onyeama made the revelation on Monday when he met with the League of Progressive Ambassadors of Nigeria officials, led by its president, Jasper Emenike,
The group’s President who briefed Onyeama on the state of affairs, called for the intervention of the government.
It has been a tale of woes as Nigerian traders have seen their shops closed, over their failure to register with the Ghana Investment Promotion Council (GIPC).
Onyeama made it clear that the FG will take up the matter with Ghanaian authorities and may also explore the option of approaching the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) court.
According to him, “We have the intention of calling our Charge D’Affairs in Ghana for consultation and again to get to the fact. We don’t want to anticipate what our actions would be, but we will consider all the options depending on the facts. “Clearly, if it is contravening ECOWAS protocol, then we would have to look at solution including the ECOWAS Court as the final arbiter”.
