A Nigerian professor on a sabbatical teaching in Ghana, Augustine Nwabara, has lashed out at what he claims is the unfair treatment of Nigerians in Ghana revealing that some Nigerians are even in the Ghana Police Service.
A video of one Augustine Nwabara, described as a Nigerian professor on a sabbatical teaching English at the University of Ghana, shows the man revealing that some of the personnel of the Ghana Police Station are Nigerians.
Under Ghanaian law, only legal Ghanaians can be in the security services. If Nwabara's claim is true, Nigerians would be flouting the law.
In the video, Nwabara is apparently addressing Nigerians at a forum in Ghana.
He could be heard moaning that: “Sadly Nigerians are not taking advantage of it [their influence in Ghana]”.
According to the English professor, Nigerians lack strategy and that is the main thing giving Ghanaians the impression that they are criminals.
Nwabara fought back against the negative image of Nigerians in Ghanaian media saying: “Nigerians are as bad as the next community and as good as the next community."
He then recounted the story of a 'Ghanaian' police officer he met.
"...I can tell you something; from his accent, I am a professor of English, he is Ghanaian Police office but from his accent, I can bet my life he is a Nigerian.
I can bet my life from his accent he is a Nigerian. He is a Ghanaian Police officer but he is a Nigerian."
On Instagram, those who heard his comments did not take kindly to it.
