Ghana Apologizes Over ‘Un-Authorized’ Advisory, Cautioning Its Citizens Against Travelling to Abuja

The Republic of Ghana has denied issuing a travel advisory warning to its citizens, where it advised them to avoid non-essential travel to Nigeria’s capital city, Abuja, over security threats.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration in Ghana had on Wednesday, November 16, issued a travel advisory, warning citizens to ‘avoid all non-essential travel’ to Abuja, due to the questionable security situation in the city, as well as the high risk of terrorism, criminality, inter-communal conflict, armed attacks, and abductions.’

But the Ministry in a media released on Thursday, November 17 titled: “Travel Advisory. Re: Security Update in Abuja, Nigeria,” had tendered apologies and remarked that the Travel Advisory issued on Wednesday was not authorized by the ministry.

The statement had read, “The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration wishes to refer to the travel advisory published on Wednesday 16th November 2022 advising against non-essential travel to Abuja, Nigeria and wishes to state that the statement was unauthorized.”

Recall that previously, the US, UK, Ireland, Canada, Germany, Turkey and Austria had back in October issued advisories to their citizens, warning against non-essential travelling to Nigeria over threats of attacks.

But the Nigerian authorities had insisted that there was no cause for alarm and that they were working round the clock to avert any security threats.
