In 2019, the Ghanaian government launched an initiative dubbed Year of Return. The whole initiative was to encourage the Diaspora to come and invest in Africa.
The initiative was very successful as many people from the Diaspora came to visit Ghana and the continent as a whole.
It seems the Nigeria government has taken something from their Ghanaian counterpart and has launched a similar initiative dubbed Door of Return.
The press release read “The Door of Return, Nigeria 2020 is an initiative of the government of Nigeria that is intended to encourage African Diasporans to come to Africa (specifically Nigeria) to settle and invest in the continent”.
This announcement has sparked a whole lot of debate on social media and Ghanaians have started trolling Nigerians for being copy cats.
According to posts and tweets on social media, Nigerians should have found a better way to launch such an initiative. The said Nigerians lacked the facilities and organization to pull this of.
Ghanaians could not hold but troll their ‘frenemies’ Nigeria on what they described as lack of ingenuity.
