The President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has dismissed claims that Nigerian traders are being bullied in Ghana.
Nana Akufo-Addo said such accusations are attempts to disrupt the strong diplomatic ties between both countries.
“I was alarmed because, if they were the sentiments and attitudes of the Federal Government of Nigeria, then we were in a really serious problem. You have to know that the Nigerian population in Ghana is safe. They are in the home of brothers. Many of them have been here over centuries trading and doing business here without any difficulties, and that culture of co-operation and brotherliness will continue.”
The President speaking at a meeting with top officials of the Federal government of Nigeria also commended the idea to set up a Joint Ministerial Committee for Ministers on both sides, to handle issues between both countries.
“The idea of legislation to promote a Ghana-Nigeria Business Council, that will superintend over trade and investment matters between our two countries, is well overdue. It is events that produce institutions, and the time has come for it to be done,” he said.
