©Afreepress-(Lomé, Aug. 2nd, 2017)- This decision was enforced by the Togolese and Ghanaian governments because of the good relations between the two countries. The decision was taken to ensure free movement of citizens on both sides and to shoot up or increase trade between Togo and Ghana.
The information was announced by Payadoma Boukpessi, The Minister of Territorial Administration, Decentralization and Local Authorities, in his statement. He said that the land border whose opening had a limitation, will now be accessible 24 hours from the 31st of July, in order to ensure the free movement of people and trade between the two countries.
