Meets with Ghanaian leader over attacks on Nigerian traders
President Muhammadu Buhari has called on Africans in the Diaspora to come up with effective suggestions on containing corruption on the continent.
Addressing participants at the High Level Media Launch on "Illicit Financial Flows and the Fight against Corruption: Curbing the Existence of Safe Havens – the Role of Africans in the Fight against Corruption" organised by the NEPAD/APRM Nigeria in New York, he enjoined them to support measures against "safe havens" for illicit financial outflows from Africa.
Also, the president conferred with his Ghanaian counterpart, Nana Akufo-Addo, on onslaughts against Nigerian traders in his country. He, however, lauded his handling of the situation.
The Ghanaian leader told Buhari that there was no intention to deliberately target Nigerians, noting that it was all about complying with the rules that guide trading in his nation.
He added that Ghana's Minister of Trade and Industry, Mr. Alan Kyerematen, had issued a press statement on the matter.
President Buhari stressed that Nigeria and Ghana have a cordial relationship that dates back to decades, urging the citizens of the two nations to always comply with the extant laws.
