Nigerian High Commissioner to Ghana, Olufemi Abikoye has cautioned Ghanaians to stop the incessant negative media reports on Nigerians living in the country.
The envoy, in a statement obtained in Abuja on today, condemned a situation where all Nigerians living in Ghana were being branded as bunch of criminals by the country’s media.
Abikoye said the continual reference to every Nigerian living in Ghana as a criminal even in reference to crimes with full participation of Ghanaians was unacceptable.
The high commissioner cautioned that such a development was not in the best interest of both countries.
He said it was wrong for Ghanaians to take the actions of insignificant few elements from Nigeria to criminalise and unfairly canonise a brotherly country like Nigeria as a country of criminals who have come to disturb the peace of Ghana.
According to the high commissioner, the daily negative reports on Nigerians by the media in Ghana has caused untold pains, agony and apprehension to the teaming law abiding Nigerians living in Ghana.
