Ghana Bans Goods From Nigeria, Other Countries-vanguardngr by Gerarahere: 11:28pm On Feb 17, 2016
Ghana has prohibited some items from entry into its domain, following Nigeria’s foot steps that restricted 41 items from access to foreign exchange. Ghana however has placed a ban on some goods from being imported into the country.

Ghanaian Minister of Trade and Industry, Mr. Ekwow Spio-Garbrah stated yesterday that Ghana and Nigeria are said to account for some 68 per cent of the ECOWAS region’s Gross Domestic Product.

Nigeria accounts for almost 10 per cent of Ghana’s foreign trade volume, whereas Ghana is listed as the 9th largest trade partner to Nigeria.

Favourite investment hub In spite of the difficulties, Ghana remains Nigeria’s largest trade partner and favourite investment hub in the West Africa sub-region, as Ghana imports the largest share of all Nigerian oil exports in the West African sub-region. While ‘bagged cement’ is on Nigeria’s prohibition list, Dangote Cement brings in and bags some 750,000 tonnes of cement a year for the Ghanaian market, and is expected to increase this to 1.5 million tonnes by end of this quarter.

The Chief Executive Officer of Ghanaian Association of Ghana Industries stated that there should be a clear letter written to the Nigerians complaining about this, and then also try and use some diplomatic means to quickly resolve it,” “If it does not work then we must also look at countervailing measures…it could be product targeting,” he said. “If we also make it difficult for them to export, then we would have to find common ground,” Kate Quartey-Papafio, CEO of Reroy Cables argued. Even for those who are able to export to Nigeria, you have to get different certificates for different customers and it takes a whole lot of time to get it. It makes the whole thing so cumbersome. You are exporting the same thing but you have to go and get certificates for each of the customers,” she said.

Nigeria has used an “Import Prohibition List” to refuse certain goods entry into that country, including a host of pharmaceutical products.

Also, the Managing Director of Intravenous Infusions Limited, a pharmaceutical company, Mr Richard Okrah noted that his company could have generated an additional 25% of export turnover from the Nigerian market. “We have been making efforts through our agent in Nigeria to get us off this list. But it is becoming a very difficult job for us,” Richard Okrah told the B&FT by phone.

The company, he said, currently produces close to 6million IV fluids of various sizes per year, and that: “We have the capacity to step this up to 15 million because we are installing a new semi-automated plan that should be up and running by the middle of April this year”. He said his company faces no such restrictions from Burkina Faso, Cote D’Ivoire and other countries where it exports to.

I can't LAFF pls, what in the first place is Nigeria exporting to Ghana. When despite our population we still import chicken, we import our agro needs to the extent of common toothpicks.

I stand to be corrected, only educationists (teachers and lecturers) and corruption is what I know we export to Ghana

Ghana sure knows how to talk a whole lot of nonsense. Their Alomo bitters and DaViva being sold here and selling fast is not enough for them right?

Our students are paying billions in Ghana anually and they still complain as if Nigeria is their worst trade partner. . . thanks to FGN for not reforming our educational sector. All d same, na their wahala be that.

it depends on the drugs. Nigeria imports drugs from different countries of the world, indian,canada and usa.
Ghana is the least. But since made in nigeria policy is a song for the senates.
Then as time goes on, nigeria will start patronising indigenous pharmaceutical products from juhel and neros pharmaceutical firms from anambra state.

Light of the entire black nations. This is time for easterner to reap from what they have sowed for so long.

Note: Fyi pls do not called ghana ordinary, this country(GHANA) is better and well managed than your country.(NIGERIA)
Nigeria is a failed country and should be term ordinary not ghana.

Any responsible government will surely seek ways to make the 'balance of trade' be in their favour.
