Ghana’s High Commissioner to UK and Republic of Ireland, Papa Owusu-Ankomah has advised young Ghanaians in the United Kingdom to get involved in the affairs of Ghana and be influencers as the country moves into the next phase of its development.

“You have the best of both worlds. You have the best in Ghana, and you are the best in the UK, so, I am urging you to be influencers for Ghana,” the High Commissioner said to thunderous applause from the young, enthusiastic crowd.

H.E. Owusu-Ankomah gave this advice at the “Ghana Party in the Park” event which is arguably the biggest Ghanaian festival outside of Ghana.

The annual festival featured live music, food, cultural activities and an exhibition of Ghanaian goods and services.

The High Commissioner used the occasion to appeal to Ghanaians to take the Covid-19 vaccination exercise seriously so as to protect themselves from the virus.

He reminded Ghanaians in the UK of the need to partake in the UK registration programme being organised by the Ghana High Commission UK to ensure their inclusion in the mission’s database.
