Femi Gbajabiamila, Speaker of the House of Representatives, has arrived in Ghana for talks over the plight of Nigerian traders in the gold coast nation.

Gbajabiamila announced his arrival via his Twitter handle on Wednesday.

He stated that he had met with his Ghanaian counterpart on Wednesday.

“Initial meeting with my host the Speaker of Ghanian Parliament who met me at the airport Hon Prof Mike Oquaye. We will meet again this evening,” he tweeted.

Gbajabiamila had told State House correspondents after a meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa on Tuesday that he had received Buhari’s nod to embark on the trip.

The visit follows the decision of the Ghanaian government to impose a $1 million levy on traders from Nigeria.

Gbajabiamila said he will be embarking on what he called “legislative diplomacy” to Ghana.

The Federal Government, through the Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, had last week protested the development, saying it would no longer accept humiliation of Nigerians by Ghana.

Ghananian authorities had since responded to the statement, saying Mohammed’s claims on the issue and previous ones were inaccurate.
