As From 9/2/2013,
When President Mahama received his copy of « A Call for a Ministry of Ghanaians in Foreign Lands with Two Subsidiary Parliamentary Seats From Each Continent », In his response, he made reference to a diasporan unit created at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. He also said, giving heed to the call, will require constitutional amendments. In his concluding remarks, the President told the author to keep convincing him.
The President’s message is clear; Ghanaians in the Diaspora who identify themselves with this call must keep convincing his Government. The constitution of Ghana was made to help Ghanaians; and amendments that will benefit Ghanaians can be effected in it.
the wish of many Ghanaians in the diaspora is that, government gives heed to this call not only to make our dream to vote in elections materialize, but also to review the commitment government needs to attach to the great pool of Talented, Skilled and Patriotic Ghanaian generations lost to Foreign Lands.
On the 9th February 2013 at the Booklaunch at La Briche, make sure you grab your Copy, Vote for your future Vote by making your submission on the petition page, sign it and mail it to the author. His team will work to « convince » the Government of Ghana with it. Let us remind ourselves that on the average, every Ghanaian family has a member in the diaspora. This call is therefore, a universal Ghanaian concern.
