The Minister has therefore urged Ghanaian traders affected by the clashes to remain calm whiles government takes a serious look into the matter to ensure sanity.

Mr Ahenkorah who is Member of Parliament for Tema West also advised Nigerian and other foreign nationals involved in petty trade to follow all rules governing their business and the laws of Ghana as a whole.

According to him, the committee includes the President of the Republic himself, Nana Akufo Addo; Minister for Foreign Affairs, Shirley Ayokor Botwe; Senior Minister, Osafo Marfo; Minister for National Security, Albert Kan Dapaah and many others.

The committee, he said, will come out with the best decision that will help save the situation for both Ghanaian citizens and other nationals.

The Deputy Minister assured that Ghana has never made and will not do anything to drive out foreigners and for that matter Nigerias but all that the country is asking is that foreign citizens, are to follow the laws of Ghana to help maintain peace in the country.
