Adam Bonaa, a security expert has condemned Nigerian High Commissioner to Ghana, Ambassador Micheal Olufemi Abikoye, for some comments made in relation to what he describes as xenophobic tendencies in the country.
Ambassador Abikoye claims the nature of reportage of crimes involving Nigerians has the potential to mar the relationship between Ghana and Nigeria.
"The Ghanaian Press, both print and electronic as well as social media seems to have enjoyed a field day in demonizing Nigeria which for all intent and purposes, is seen as a fraternal brother to Ghana . . . the ongoing media trial of criminals which was now being turned into a media trial of Nigeria as a country, calls for moderation on the part of media practitioners in Ghana," he said in a statement.
But speaking to this in an interview on Peace FM's Midday news, Adam Bonaa described his statement as condescending and undiplomatic.
"I am sure he is just a politician, not a diplomat who has been sent to represent Nigerians here. The way the statement was couched doesn't speak well of a diplomat . . . " he said.
Adam Bonaa has also asked that the professor who was heard in a video plotting to 'tear up' Ghana be dealt with.
He urged the security to invite him for questioning because if this case is not handled well, it will encourage others to say or do anything and get away with it.
A Nigerian Professor at the University of Ghana by name Augustine Nwabara was heard in a video making the rounds on social media, inciting the Nigerian media and community in Ghana to strategize in how to destroy the image of Ghana to the world.
The Prof interacting with some Nigerians in the country asked them to 'tear up' Ghana in the eyes of the international community through negative reportage.
