He however lamented the way Ghana is taking the ECOWAS protocol for granted and said is disturbing and citing Cote d’ voire as an example that despite this protocol they are still very strict as to who goes in and come out of the country.
He also said chiefs and duty bearers have not lived up to expectations in managing foreigners in the country adding that we have no data as to the number of fulanis in this area.
They just come meet a chief and settle, then invite their relatives to join them without any proper process of entry,he noted.
