1 min

In a Save-Our-Soul letter delivered to the Chairman of the Nigerian Diaspora Commission (NiDCOM), Nigerians in Ghana called the attention of Nigerian government to return them back home. According to Mrs Abike Dabiri-Erewa, she said they seek for a peaceful evacuation from Ghana.

The evacuation letter, which was signed by 753 traders, was delivered to her by the union president, Dr Ken Ukoaha

In the letter, these Nigerians in diaspora expressed their willingness to come back home is as a result of different intimidation, frustruation and embarrassment they consistently face in the country. Also, the imposition of $1m business equity on non-Ghanian citizens by their government has a way to endanger their survival and threaten the growth of their businesses.

Moreover, they alleged the Ghanian authorities of closing their shops for a year while the landlords keep requesting for money for rent.

“Diplomatic niceties at the highest level between Nigeria and Ghana have not yielded positive results.

“Landlords are coming to ask us for rent. How do we pay with our shops locked up for so long? We are dying here”, the traders lamented in the letter.

However, Dabiri-Erewa received the letter and addressed them to give chance for peace as she conveys the message to the appropriate authorities. She told them that even the Nigerian government will be happy to welcome them back home.
