The Director in charge of Diasporan relations at the office of the President, Akwasi Awua Ababio says the grant of Ghanaian citizenship to 126 people in the diaspora was well-thought out as it will help in the accelerated development of the country.

He said efforts are being made to grant more people such privilege since the President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, is committed to that as it will fast track the development of the country.

Mr. Awua Ababio was speaking at a thanksgiving service in Accra to mark the third anniversary of the Ministry of the Future, a diasporan group which facilitated the grant of citizenship to 126 Africans in the diaspora.

A former Greater Accra Regional Director at the Ministry of Tourism, Gifty Quansah traced the year of Return programme to the era of former President Rawlings when two young Africans in the diaspora who were buried outside were re-interred at Assin Manso in the Central region and the Joseph Project initiated by the late Minister for Diasporan Relations, Jake Obetsebi Lamptey.

She urged those granted Ghanaian citizenship not to look down on the indigenous people but cooperate with them to make the programmes worthwhile.

A member of the National Clergy Association, Apostle Johannes Gameklu commended the founder of the Ministry of the Future for his singular initiative which has helped in reinter-grating sons and daughters of Ghanaian slaves back to their motherland.
