“Nigerians Contributed In The Development Of Ghana” – Igbo King In Ghana
The King of Igbos in Ghana, His Royal Majesty Eze Dr. Chukwudi Jude Ihenetu, has called for the strengthening of the bilateral relationship between Ghana and Nigeria to improve trade within the West African sub-region.
He said Nigerian businesses do not pose a threat to Ghana’s economy but rather aid growth through payment of taxes as well as employment creation.
Speaking on GhOne TV’s State of Affairs, HRM Ihenetu said, Nigerian youth are generally driven by a strong desire to succeed in spite of the many economic challenges that confront them as citizens of Africa’s most populous nation.
He, however, warned that genuine and hard-working Nigerian businessmen and women should not suffer from prejudice as a result of the misconduct of a few people.
He called on the Government of the Republic of Ghana to “temper justice with mercy” by relaxing laws which prohibit non-Ghanaians from engaging in retail trade, stating that there are millions of Ghanaians engaged in similar activities in Nigeria without fearing that Nigerian authorities will shut their businesses down.
