Earlier, the Federal Government has threatened to drag Ghana before the Economic Community of West African States, ECOWAS Court.
Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyeama, who revealed this noted that the move is to seek a lasting solution to the continuous attack on Nigerian traders in Ghana.
He made this known while playing host to representatives of the Nigerian traders in Ghana under the Progressive Ambassadors of Nigeria.
Onyeama said the Nigerian government had proactively swung into action to address the situation within the shortest time possible adding that one of the measures for a concrete solution was to get in touch with ECOWAS to know its perspective on the situation.
He added that the measure would also reveal if the Ghanaian retail code was in contravention to ECOWAS protocols.
