Gabby Otchere-Darko, a leading member of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) has called for sanctions against foreigners who flout the country’s laws.
According to him, these foreigners must be prosecuted instead of being deported.
He was reacting to the arest of some Burkinabe’s who were arrested on the Gwollu street about 807 km from the national capital Accra and deported.
“We should not be quick to deport foreigners who break our laws. If a citizen would be imprisoned for a similar offence then first prosecute and imprison the convicted foreigner before deporting him after serving his sentence. They cannot be treated better than us,” he said in a tweet.
