The office of Ghana Consulate-General has denied placing any ban on goods from Nigeria, reports say.

There were reports in the media that Ghana banned the importation of some Nigerian goods into their country.

Allegedly as retaliation to Nigeria’s initial move, restricting 41 items from accessing foreign exchange.

According to Vanguard the Ghanaian authority’s say there was no deliberation on the matter, and at no point was any such decision taken.

A statement from the Ghana Consulate-General,obtained from Vanguard reads “The Ghana High Commission would wish to state categorically that the (story) is false and does not reflect the position of the Ghanaian Government or that of the Hon. Minister of Trade and Industry of Ghana, Mr. Ekwow Spio-Grbarah, as alleged by the Vanguard report.”

You will recall that the All Progressives Congress (APC) has accused Governor Ayo Fayose of Ekiti state, of using the state funds to import strippers from Ghana and other African countries.
