Can a man from Lagos Nigeria meet in Ghana to marry? Or does he have to marry in Nigeria/ why?

He told me his passport won't permit to him to marry in Ghana since he is from Nigeria.He say I must come to Nigeria to marry. Confused please help?

    What you have been told is incorrect. A Nigerian does not need a visa to enter Ghana.

    Non-Ghanaians can marry in Ghana, and they can have a non religious civil wedding., Known as an ordinance wedding.

    If neither of you is from Ghana, one of the partners must be living in Ghana for some number of days (about 1 month), to obtain a Registrar's Certificate.
    Ghana is a much safer country than Nigeria

    You do not say what country you are from.
