British High Commissioner to Ghana, Jon Benjamin, arguably the most controversial diplomat in the country, has completed his service in Ghana and is due for transfer to another diplomatic mission.

UK Foreign Office has announced the appointment of Iain Walker by Her Majesty as the new British High Commissioner to the country.

In a statement published on the UK government website, the appointment of Mr Walker would take effect in August 2017.

The statement added Mr Benjamin would be transferred to another Diplomatic Service appointment.

Jon Benjamin described as an unconventional diplomat has not shied away from participating on Ghanaian conversations and controversies. His favourite target has been controversial founder of the International God's Way International Church, Bishop Daniel Obinim

He also joined Ghana's twitter community to make fun out of trending issues including politics. Last December, Jon Benjamin was forced to delete a tweet suggestively jabbing President John Mahama after it angered sections on social media.
