Ghana grants citizenship to African Americans & Caribbeans as part of beyond the return initiative

Ghana grants citizenship to African Americans & Caribbeans as part of beyond the return initiative. Ghana has granted citizenship to several African Americans and Afro Caribbeans as part of the country beyond the return initiative to attract resettlement of Africa descendants. In 2019, Ghana successfully hosted the Year of return with a raft of activities, at home and abroad, to encourage the descendants of those who were forcibly sent into slavery to return home to Africa.

    The President of Ghana spoke eloquently and with diplomacy regarding the diaspora and people with African descent.

    Contrast this to Guyana, in particular the diatribes of Freddy Kissoon lambasting that the diaspora do not deserve to apply for jobs in Guyana, how activist Dr. David Hinds did not live in Guyana, how Dr. Alissa Trotz and several signatories of a letter do not live in Guyana.

    What is the icing on the cake was when the Minister of Natural Resources alluded to the business elite that anyone who didn’t live [under the PPP regime] candlelight and poor water supply are not real Guyanese.

    God bless the President of Ghana.

    Ghana is doing the right move to invest in human potential.

    A nation cannot solely rely on handouts, bailouts, oil rents and remittances like Guyana.

    Invest in the people and the country will become prosperous.

    The similarity between Ghana and Guyana is that Ghana is also a recent oil producer, but the country is more humble in terms of their oil wealth.

    They don’t create enemies and alienate people like the Guyanese politicians.

    Akwaba. This is extremely great news. I have visited Ghana five times already. I was also fortunate to have met President Nana Akufo-Addo when he visited my country Guyana, and even got the opportunity to take a photograph with him. As a journalist, I have written a few feature articles about Ghana and the president.

    The racism and police violence are pushing Americans with African descent to migrate to West Africa.

    I’m a full-blooded “Indo-Guyanese” and can feel where they are coming from. These Western A-B-C and European countries are hostile for persons of colour.

    My question is whether Guyana can get rid of their racial politics and unite like Ghana to make a safe refuge for those suffering racism and police brutality in America, Canada and Europe.
