Presidency Reacts To Deportation Of 723 Nigerians From Ghana

By Adaku Onoja

The Federal government has assured Nigerians recently deported from Ghana that they would not be made to suffer for crimes they did not commit.

The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Diaspora, Mrs. Abike Dabiri-Erewa, gave the assurance while briefing State House correspondents at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

She said the Nigerian Ambassador to Ghana, Mr. Olufemi Abikoye is already wading into the issue stressing that the matter would soon be resolved.

According to her, “The story of hundreds of Nigerians being deported from Ghana is disturbing and worrisome. The good thing is that Nigerian Ambassador to Ghana is on top of the situation. Now, he met with the Comptroller General of the Immigration in Ghana and they both had a very productive discussion.

She said if indeed any of the deportees committed any crime, they will surely face the music

“It’s important that both nations look at this situation, not gloss over it to ensure that our relationships continue to get better and not retrogress. So, we appeal to Nigerians that wherever you are, you are the number one ambassador of the country.
