The Vice President of Policy think-tank, IMANI Africa, Kofi Bentil has urged the political leaders of Ghana and Nigeria to sign a pact to curb the attacks on Nigerian retail traders in Ghana.

Kofi Bentil, who was commenting on the recent closure of Nigerian shops in Kumasi by local traders said it is time the two countries found a lasting solution to the age-old menace of “xenophobic” attacks.

According to him, the  immediate stop gap measure is a bilateral treaty. Mr Bentil who is also a legal practitioner said the law prohibits non-Ghanaians from engaging in retail trade in the jurisdiction.

Subsequent governments have, however, found it difficult to implement the law on retail trade causing traders to go on the riot on seasonal basis.

Mr Bentil, was speaking on an Accra based radio station.
