The Minister of Aviation under the Goodluck Jonathan administration, Femi Fani-Kayode, has noted that the Nigerian High Commission building in Accra, Ghana was demolished because Nigeria has no President.
Fani-Kayode noted that such would not happen under the administration of former President Olusegun Obasanjo or the regime of General Sani Abacha.
Recall that the government of Ghana on Sunday in its reaction to the demolition noted that the structure was destroyed by unknown people.
The House of Representatives Committee on Foreign Affairs has also declared that Ghana must face the consequences of the demolition of the Nigerian Embassy staff quarters in Accra.
The chairman of the committee, Yusuf Buba, in a statement released on Monday claimed that the demolition is an infringement of the International Rights of Nigeria.
The former minister who recalled that Ghana had earlier closed shops belonging to Nigerians in their country, tweeted, “Nigerian traders in Ghana have had their shops forcefully shut for the last 8 months.”
“Now our Embassy in Accra has been demolished and embassy staff threatened with violence.”
“I assure you that Ghana would not try this if Nigeria had a President or if OBJ [Obasanjo] or Abacha were in power.”
