The Executive Director of Nigerian Business Forum in Ghana, Chief Oloye Oyeyemi Fatuyi, has urged the Ghana and Nigerian Union Traders Associations to lead the way towards a healthy collaboration in trade, investment and growth.

He called on them to brainstorm on issues that will help address the barriers to trade, business, investment and propose pragmatic ways to address them together with the business community.

Speaking in an interview with WestAfrica24.com in Accra, Chief Fatuyi indicated that both Ghana and Nigeria should come together to contribute significantly to an enabling business environment critical for private sector competitiveness and sustainable development.

He said partnership between both countries will help economic development for the West African sub-region.

On the closure of the Nigerian border, Chief Oyeyemi Fatuyi noted that Nigeria launched a partial border closure in August as part of an effort to thwart smuggling of rice and other goods.

He therefore called on Nigerians living in Ghana not to let criticism kill their dreams but rather be patriotic citizens by serving both Ghana and Nigeria in fairness and honesty.

Chief Oyeyemi Fatuyi also urged Nigerian traders to live in Ghana in peace, love and with respect for their fellow Ghanaian traders.
