The occasion of Ghana’s independence celebration on March 6, 2013 was what took me to Washington DC, to join a host of Ghanaians from all across the USA and non-Ghanaians alike who had convened at the embassy of Ghana to commemorate the 56th anniversary of the attainment of independence by Ghana from British colonial rule.
On the issue of economic growth and expansion, one of the things expected to drive this cause is the discovery of oil and natural gas in Ghana. H.E Agyekum calls oil and natural gas one of the many natural resources ‘Ghana is fortunate to have been blessed with by God’. The Ambassador called on Ghanaians with skills and expertise in the oil prospecting and processing industry who are living and working outside the country or inside the USA, especially in areas like Texas, to go back home and help with the development of this new found resource.
