The federal government has assured Nigerians deported recently by the Ghanaian authorities that they would not be made to suffer for crimes they did not commit.
The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Diaspora, Abike Dabiri-Erewa, gave the assurance yesterday while reacting to the development.
She said the Nigerian ambassador in that West African nation, Ambassador Olufemi Abikoye, was on top of the situation, assuring them that the matter would soon be resolved.
The presidential aide said: “The story that hundreds of Nigerians 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.”
