Former Governor of Anambra state and the vice presidetial candidate of the People’s Democratic Party in the 2019 general election, Peter Obi has added his voice in condemning the alleged oppression of Nigerian traders by Ghanaian Government.
Obi made his opinion on the trending issue known through his Twitter handle on Sunday evening.
“The cries of Nigerians for help must never go unnoticed. The allegations by Nigerian traders that Ghanaian authorities are high handed in their dealings with them deserves the attention of our government. In the spirit of African integration, both nations need one another,” he said.
In a video that went viral during the weekend, Ghanaian authorities were seen locking up shops belonging to Nigerians, even when the traders claimed they had paid the requested taxes.
The act has attracted the ire of many Nigerians who are calling on the Nigerian government to take a bold step that will deter the Ghanaian authorities from such actions in future.
