The Yoruba Youth Socio-cultural Association (YYSA) has condemned the deportation of over 700 Nigerians by the Ghana government within a year with allegation of not having genuine documents, describing it as scornful and extremely ridiculous.
The association’s president, Olalekan Hammed in a statement on Wednesday said it was a xenophobic attack in another dimension by the Ghana government.
It said it was sad when there were thousands of Ghanaians making billions of naira in Nigeria without having required papers.
It charged the Nigeria Immigration Service need to be thorough on immigrants by ensuring that all foreigners possess all necessary document or be deported.
According to the youths, ‘’it is no more business as usual. Any company owned by foreigners that failed to pay its tax as and when due should be sanctioned without further delay.
“The federal government of Nigeria should mandate all the neighbouring countries that are sharing power generation with Nigeria to pay outstanding fees immediately.
“We must be strict with our laws and policies for us to command respect”, they said.
