No Nigerian Shops Open for Business in Ghana Despite Talks

It has been almost ten years and dozens of shops belonging to Nigerians are still under lock and key. The centre of the lingering controversy was a U.S.$1 million levy imposed on Nigerian traders and other investors, that had to be paid the Ghana Investment Promotions Centre, before the shops could be opened. While most of the owners are stranded, many are reluctant to come back home despite a window created by the Nigeria government to facilitate their safe return, writes Hamisu Kabir Matazu and Sunday Michael Ogwu for Daily Trust.
