Presidency expresses worry over deportation of 723 Nigerians from Ghana

The Presidency has expressed concerns about the deportation of 723 Nigerians by the authorities in Ghana since 2018.

The reaction came through the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Diaspora, Mrs. Abike Dabiri-Erewa, on Thursday.

She said, “The story that hundreds of Nigerians are being deported from Ghana is disturbing and worrisome.

“The good thing is that the Nigerian Ambassador to Ghana is on top of the situation.

“Now, he met with the Comptroller-General of the Immigration in Ghana and they both had a very productive discussion.

“But here is the situation: if, indeed, you commit a crime, you have to face the penalties. But, what we are saying is that a bad apple should not spoil the bunch.

“Let every case be treated on its merit. That’s what our ambassador is demanding and that’s what Nigeria is asking for.”
