The Senate has urged the Federal Ministry of Foreign Affairs to liaise with the Ghanaian Government to strengthen bilateral relations between both countries to prevent the maltreatment of Nigerians entering Ghana.

This is contained in the recommendations of the Senate after it considered a report by the Joint Committee on Health; Primary Health and Communicable Diseases; and Foreign Affairs at plenary.

The Chairman of the Joint Committee, Yahaya Oloriegbe, presented the report to the Senate.

Oloriegbe recalled that the investigation was necessitated by allegations that the Ghanaian authorities diagnosed Nigerians who travelled to their country of testing positive for COVID-19 even after testing negative in Nigeria.

He said it was alleged further that Nigerian travellers to the country were committed to isolation for two weeks at seventy-thousand naira equivalent daily, an amount running into millions of naira.
