Nigerians in Ghana are safe, says deputy head of mission

THE Deputy Head of Mission, Ghana High Commission to Nigeria, Ms Iva Denoo,  has assured Nigerians living in Ghana of maximum security.

She gave the assurance in an audience with the Secretary of the Nigerians in Diaspora Commission, Dr. Sule Yakubu  Bassi, who represented the Chairman of the commission, Hon Abike Dabiri, while speaking about the recent demolition at the Nigerian High Commission in Ghana.

She described it as rather an unfortunate and regrettable incident.

The Head of Mission to Nigeria said what was going on was very sad and it was never the intention of their government that such an ugly situation should ever happen

“Ghana cherishes the cordial relationship it is  enjoying with the Nigerian government and it has so much to gain than to lose from Nigerians in Ghana,” she stressed.

Ms Denoo said they also have a Diaspora Department in her country and hoped that the two countries could come together and work out something that would be beneficial to them.

The Secretary to the commission, Dr. Sule Yakubu Bassi,  thanked the Ghana Deputy Head of Mission for her visit and urged her to ensure that Nigerians in Ghana are secure and safe because the two countries have a lot in common.
