Ghanaian Authorities Re-Open Nigerian Shops After Three Months Closure.



Nigerians Re-gain Their Shops In Ghana After Months Of Closure.

After three months of closure and alleged victimization, hundreds of Nigerians shops, in Ghana have been reopened.

Mr Chukwuemeka Nnaji, the President, Nigeria Union of Traders Association Ghana, has confirmed the development in an interview with newsmen today.

According to Nnaji, Ghanaian authorities have reopened all the shops as of today, November 8, 2018. He said that reopening of those locked up shops followed the intervention of the Federal Government of Nigeria.

The Federal Government had on November 2 summoned the Ghana High Commissioner to Nigeria, Rashid Bawa, to explain how the Government of Ghana was handling the situation. The Foreign Affairs Minister, Geoffrey Onyema, expressed the government’s displeasure at what he described as unfavourable report emanating from the issue. Nnaji said, “I can confirm to you that our shops have been reopened by the Ghanaian authorities.”

NAN reports that hundreds of shops run by Nigerians were reportedly shut following an impasse with the Ghana Union of Traders Association.
