Odessa Chambers has expressed satisfaction with the decision by Ghana and Jamaica to allow their citizens to move into the two countries without a visa.
The daughter of renowned international reggae sensation Jimmy Cliff, described the move as the best thing that ever happened as her entry into Ghana this year was a very smooth one.
“When I landed, I just showed my Jamaican passport and all they said was you are welcome home, Akwaaba. It was a pretty thing,” she told JoyNews on January 8.
“I think what needs to be done now is that there should be some sort of a trade between them. A sort of experience whereby you can jump on a plane and go straight to Jamaica within seven hours instead of being on three planes just to get to Jamaica,” she advised.
