Ghana's Ambassador to Norway to inaugurate National Union of Ghanaians in Norway

The purpose of the National Union is to collaborate with Ghana’s Embassy in Oslo, Norway to champion the interests of Ghana and Ghanaians in Norway regardless of which political party is in charge of affairs back home in Ghana.

The formation of the union also seeks to create a platform for networking and collaboration amongst the local and regional unions in Norway. In addition will the union work for the welfare and common good of all Ghanaians living in Norway.

The union will also support national ‘nonpartisan’ developmental projects back home in Ghana as a way of giving back to the Ghanaian society. The National Union of Ghanaians in Norway will be the voice and representative of all Ghanaian associations/unions in Norway in the planned larger Ghanaian Union in the Nordic countries.

The inauguration will be graced by some Ghanaian cultural activities and followed by a Christmas party, music and dance at the same venue.

The party is to give members the opportunity to meet, socialize and rekindle lost contacts after almost two years of lockdown and the ban on social gatherings during the Covid-19 pandemic. The event is being sponsored and supported by the County of Bergen & Passion for Difference Organization.
