The Nigerian High Commission in Ghana has said that it would not defend Nigerians engaged in criminal activities in Ghana.
It said those who found themselves in such nefarious activities would face the laws of the country and asked the criminals to desist from giving Nigeria a bad name.
Mr. Simon Eze, a Minister at the High Commission said this when he launched a special Gala Night to commemorate Nigeria's 47th Independence Day celebration, which falls on October 1.
Proceeds from the event would be used to support some orphanages.
He noted that those whose work or activities would raise high, the flag of Nigeria would receive all the backing they needed from the Commission, citing the increasing number of Nigerian banks in the Ghanaian Banking industry which made banking more competitive now.
"Henceforth there would be nothing like 'the Nigerian way' but all things would follow the due process" he said, and urged members of the Nigerian community to give a good account of themselves and do away with the erroneous impression being tagged at them.
He said the Commission would work towards the further strengthening of the bilateral relationship between the two countries.
Mr Henry Shebure, a member of the planning committee said the occasion was not only to celebrate the anniversary but also to encourage Nigerians to support the orphanages in Ghana.
He called on the Nigerian as well as the Ghanaian business community to support the event.
