Border closure: Let our goods enter Nigeria, yours are entering Ghana —Ghanaian minister

Ghana’s Foreign Minister and Regional Integration, Shirley Ayorkor Botchwey has appealed to the Nigerian government to let goods from Ghana enter Nigeria.

She said this in light of the recent closure of Nigeria’s western borders in order to curb the illegal entry of banned items.

Botchwey also said that the Ghanaian government would make use of all diplomatic avenues to get Nigeria to reopen its western borders for the free flow of goods from Ghana to the subregion.

Botchwey issued the plea during a meeting with Nigeria’s High Commission to Ghana, Olufemi Michael Abikoye on Tuesday, reports Ghanaweb.

She said, “As we speak, Nigerian goods are entering Ghana without any problem and I think that we should find ways of isolating the issues and the countries that you have problems with so that Ghana’s exports can enter your market without being lumped up with all these issues that have emerged.”
