"Nigerian Traders Must Pay The Required Taxes And Other Fees Imposed On Them By Authorities"-  Ghana Insists





A Nigerian trader whose shop was forcefully locked up by the Ghanian security officials had recorded a video of the scene where they asked him to pay the sum of $1 million registration fee.

This happened despite the intervention of the presidents of Ghana and Nigeria through the Economic Community of West  African States.

Meanwhile, the Ghanian Ministry of Traders has rejected claims of unfair treatment by Nigerian traders in the country during the enforcement of the Ghana Investment Promotion Council regulations while insisting that the traders must pay the required taxes and other fees imposed on them by the authorities.

Speaking on the incident on a Ghanaian radio station, Starrfm, the Head of Communications, Ministry of Trade, Prince Boakye Boateng said the Nigerian traders had failed to honour an ultimatum to meet the requirements.

Boateng stressed that the law being enforced gave Ghana Union of Traders Association the right to be the sole traders in the local market.
