In an interview on Kingdom Breakfast on Thursday, June 20, 2016, Rev. Professor Emmanuel Asante explained that Ghana needs peace in its development and also there should be maintenance of cordial relationship with her neighbors.

“We need our brothers and they also need us” he added. Ministry of Trade and authorities in charge should handle the situation with all diligence in other to avoid any xenophobia attacks on our citizens in other countries. According to him, it is a disgrace to Ghana for countries to warn their citizens travelling to Ghana to be very careful” he told the host Osikani Frimpong Manso.

While expressing his view concerning the rising conflict between Ghanaian and Nigerians citizens traders at Suame Magazine, a suburb of Kumasi in the Ashanti region, Rev Asante further advised the public not to take the law into their own hands but rather report wrongdoers to authorities.
