The minority leader of Parliament, Haruna Iddrisu has charged the Speaker of Parliament, Prof. Mike Oquaye to summon before Parliament the Foreign Affairs Minister, Shirley Ayorkor Botchwey to answer questions on the demolition of a property belonging to the Nigerian High Commission in Ghana.

On Friday, news broke that bulldozers with protection from some alleged armed men reportedly demolished structures belonging to the Nigerian High Commission in Accra.

There have been several pronouncements by Nigerian officials indicating their displeasure at the action and calling on the Government of Ghana to prosecute persons involved.

The government of Ghana has since denied any involvement in the issue with the Foreign Affairs Ministry commencing investigations into the matter.

Speaking on the floor of parliament on Tuesday, June 23 while commending President Akufo-Addo on foreign policy, Mr. Iddrisu said it is expedient for the Foreign Affairs Minister to appear before Parliament to answer questions on what he describes as an embarrassing development.

”We would be inviting the Foriegn Minister to provide an explanation to what happened to the Nigerian High Commission which may be giving us some diplomatic embarrassment,” he said.
