The National Association of Nigerian Traders (NANTS) has urged the Federal Government of Nigeria to take urgent action as Ghanaian authorities commenced another round of closure of shops belonging to Nigerian traders on Monday.

Dr Ken Ukaoha, the National President of NANTS, who made the call in an interview with NAN in Abuja, condemned the maltreatment of Nigerian traders in Ghana.

Ukaoha explained that the entire process showed Ghana’s decision to undermine trade and economic integration process in ECOWAS.

Recall that 270 shops belonging to Nigerian traders in Ghana have been under lock and key since September 2019.

“As at today, November 30, the Ghanaian Authorities led by Security Agencies have started another round of closure of shops belonging to Nigerian traders in Ghana.

“The notice placed above the padlocks on each of the locked shops informs owners to come to their Ministry of Trade and Industry with evidence of payment of one million dollars.

“It’s indeed a complete dent on the face of ECOWAS and a bold question, perhaps asking the Nigerian Government “what would you do”? OR “do your worst,” Ukaoha said.

He added: “It’s indeed senseless that you asked a community to leave your space and while they’re preparing with their government on how to act on your demand, another round of closure is being effected.

“Ghana would definitely regret these war songs, knowing clearly that the rebound would hit strongly on her people and her economy, especially when Nigerians move out of the country with their business investments.

“Nigeria should, therefore, take immediate actions and urgently present this and the maltreatment of Nigerians in Ghana to the Council of Ministers and the Authority of Heads of State.”
