Ghanaian government has violated Nigeria’s diplomatic premises. A day to the end of the year, Nigerian High Commission in Ghana received a terse letter from solicitors acting on behalf   of Amaco Microfinance Company, Limited, Ghana giving instructions for the High Commission to vacate its diplomatic property at No, 10 Barnes Road, Accra. adsbygoogle || []).push({}); adsbygoogle || []).push({});

The letter warned that failure of the High Commission to comply within the stipulated time would lead to depositing of the mission’s belonging at the nearest Accra police station.

A statement made available by Nigerian High Commissioner to Ghana, Ambassador Olufemi Michael Abikoye indicates that the property has been broken into by the company and is being ransacked with the likelihood of being effectively occupied.

The letter from the solicitors is coming following continuous violation of the diplomatic property and a formal notification by Ghana Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration that the diplomatic property had been reallocated to Amaco Microfinance on August 26, 2019 by Ghana’s Ministry of Lands and Natural Resources following the expiration of the lease.

The host Foreign Ministry further stated that, there was an assignment of a lease hold interest from the assignor, Thomas D. Hardy to Ministry of Finance Incorporated-Federation of Nigeria on 23rdOctober, 1959. It explained that at the time of the assignment, the leasehold had 16 years to lapse and that the term of the lease based on which the assignment was executed expired 46 years ago, without any evidence of renewal. As such the property reverted to the state in compliance with article 258 of Ghana’s 1992 constitution.

It would be recalled that Ambassador Abikoye had severally requested for a mutual resolution of the matter, affirming that Nigerian government is examining the situation and that appropriate was being awaited.
