According to bbc.com, Ghana Trade Union Officials have been forcefully locking up stores owned by foreigners, majorly Nigerians, because they violated “trade union” rules.
It might interest you to know that these trade union “rule” requires all foreign businesses to have an investment of at least $1 million in Ghana before they can operate fully.
While this is highly exorbitant, what happened with the ECOWAS free trade agreement? Or is it no longer functional?
The funny thing is that this isn’t even the case for Ghanaians in Nigeria, which is why some people have called for a retaliation on Ghanaian owned businesses in Nigeria.
Africans complain of oppression solely because they aren’t the oppressors! Many Nigerian businesses are still struggling to recover from the effects of the Covid19 global lockdown, now this.
Well according to Alhaji Abdulaziz Ibrahim, the head of the chancery at the Nigerian High Commission in Ghana, told BBC the two countries enjoy “a special relationship”, are speaking “at a government to government level” and “expect a swift resolution”.
