Speaking at the event the high commissioner of Ghana to Nigeria HE.Alhaji Rashid Bawa, reaffirmed his country’s commitment to ensuring improved relations between the two countries.
According to him, disunity distorts development and a distorted development gives birth to poverty, under-development and corruption.
“as citizens of a global world, we need to uphold the tenets of unity and rally round governments to bring the needed growth to our individual countries.
As citizens we have to step out and help in ending corruption which has so far affected our development.
There is growth between Ghana-Nigeria bilateral relations since the past three years; both countries are focused in their determination to increase trade, investment and political exchanges to enhance peace and prosperity.
Ghana and Nigeria have bonded through years of shared culture and societal values, and both countries have mutually benefited from this experience.
Intermittently, wrong impression derived from misinformation threatens inter-personal relations between citizens of our countries, but Ghana wishes to strongly affirm its commitment to ensuring improved relations between our countries and our citizens.”
