They claimed shops of other West African nationals have been opened but there has not been any proper explanation why shops of Nigerians are still locked.

The row between Ghanaian and Nigerian traders stem from the perennial complaints by the indigenous traders that foreigners are engaged in retail business against Ghana’s laws.









The Nigeria government had officially complained to ECOWAS about the reported harassment of its citizens in Ghana, but the government issued a statement to refute this.
