The Federal Republic of Nigeria has rejected Ghana’s formal apology over the unfortunate demolition of the Nigerian High Commission building by some unidentified men who were said to have acted on the orders of the Osu Stool.
Nigerian lawmakers have described the unfortunate incident as a “direct attack on the Federal Republic of Nigeria which must not go unanswered”.
The lawmakers are therefore urging the Nigerian Foreign Ministry to initiate a retaliation on the Ghana Mission in Abuja to send a strong warning to Ghana.
This response by the Nigerian legislators is in line with an official briefing by the Nigerian Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geofferey Onyeama who briefed the House of Representatives that Ghana has officially apologized for the “wrongful” demolition of buildings belonging to the Nigerian High Commission in Accra.
However, the lawmakers said an apology is simply not enough since the demolition is a blatant attack on Nigeria’s sovereignty.
