Nigerians now ‘free’ to work in Ghana
Nigerian nationals in Ghana have for sometime now felt a bit insecure to operate their works freely in Ghana because of the recent happenings.
Some notorious Nigerians involvements in criminal activities like robbery and kidnapping in Ghana has created a general perception about Nigerians in the eyes of Ghanaians.
A couple of weeks ago, Nigerians who owned shops at Suame, Kumasi in the Ashanti Region – Ghana, were forcibly moved out of their shops. Reason being that, major news bulletins reported Nigerians involvements in criminal activities in Ghana, therefore, some Ghanaians generalised it, affecting innocent Nigerians too.
However, the government of Ghana stood to their grounds to ensure that, such perceptions are erased so that Nigerians in Ghana could operate freely without being attacked.
Speaking to the media, a Nigerian shop owner Mr Oke said that, Nigerian traders are going about their business without any hitches.
“We are happy the Ghanaian authorities are ensuring that the right thing is done. We can now safely do our business,” he said.
