Reports have it that Nigerian traders in Accra were locked up by Ghanaian authorities who demanded cash payment of one million dollars from them.

President of Nigerian Traders Union in Ghana, Mr Chukwuemeka Nnaji, who disclosed this yesterday, decried the closure of shops owned by Nigerians doing business in the country.

He urged the Federal Government to intervene, adding that the humiliation they are getting from Ghanaians is getting out of hand.

According to him, an inter-ministerial Tasktask force went round on August 10 to identify shops owned by Nigerian traders and requested for registration of business taxes, resident permit, standard control and Ghana Investment Promotion Council (GIPC) registration.

Mr Nnaji regretted that most of their members do not have the GIPC registration, because it requires one million dollars cash or equity and the Ghanaian authorities gave them 14 days within which to regularise it but as at Thursday last week, they had moved to another area and started locking up shops belonging to Nigerian.

He further complained that Ghanaian authorities also demanded that they must employ a minimum of 25 skilled Ghanaian workers and must not trade in commodities that Ghanaian traders have applied for, lamenting that it is the livelihood of Nigerians that are being destroyed by Ghanaian Authorities.
