The Ranking Member of Foreign Affairs Honourable Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa has expressed disappointment on government of Ghana over the demolition of the Nigeria High Commission’s properties in Accra.
According to the North Tongu Member of Parliament, the action taken by Ghana government against the Nigeria High Commission is worrying and may go a long way to affect the cordial relationship between the two countries if not properly addressed.
Mr. Ablakwa urged Nigeria government and the government of Ghana under the presidency of H.E Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to immediately resolve the issue to prevent it from escalating.
He assured the public that, the Foreign Affairs Committee of the Parliament of Ghana will in the coming days play its role in contributing to an amicable resolution.
Below is Hon. Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa’s post.
I have followed media reports of an alleged demolishing of properties belonging to the Nigerian High Commission in Accra and subsequent tweets from the Nigerian Minister for Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyeama.
Very disturbing developments with possible devastating consequences for Ghana-Nigeria relations if not well managed with all the urgency required.
Hoping all sides will urge calm and do everything to prevent an escalation in the spirit of our enviable ancestral ties.
I believe the Foreign Affairs Committee of the Parliament of Ghana will in the coming days play its role in contributing to an amicable resolution.
Long live the cordiality of Ghana-Nigeria relations.
