Former Minister Reacts To Attack On high Commission’s Building
Former minister of aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, says the recent attacks on the Nigerian High Commission in Ghana would not happen under former President Olusegun Obasanjo or military dictator, Sani Abacha.
Mr Fani-Kayode tweeted this on Monday in reaction to the demolition of the High Commission in Ghana and threats on its staff last Friday.
“Nigerian traders in Ghana have had their shops forcefully shut for the last 8 months,” he wrote.
“Now our Embassy in Accra has been demolished & embassy staff threatened with violence. I assure you that Ghana would not try this if Nigeria had a President or if OBJ or Abacha were in power.”
The demolition was carried out by a Ghanaian businessman who claimed the commission was encroaching on his land.
Following calls for action, Ghanaian authorities have apologised for the incident and assured that the issue would be resolved.
The attack on the commission comes as the latest in a string of hostile actions towards Nigerians resident in Ghana.
