The government decision to introduce the African Home Return Bill in Parliament was meant to integrate Diasporas and African heritage descents coming to Ghana, the Deputy Minister of Tourism Arts and Culture, Mr Okraku Mantey has explained.

He said the bill when passed into law would remove all impediments which could stall the integration and ensure their permanent stay and property acquisitions were given priority by the law.

The Deputy Minister made this known at a three-day event being hosted by Ghana to mark this year’s celebration of the “World Day for African and Afro-descendant Culture Day which has January 24 as its commemorative day.


Dr Bennett said the most monumental accomplishment of DAF was the realisation and citizenships deal on the continent with Ghana swearing in 34 and 126 African Diasporas as citizens of Ghana, in 2016 and 2019 respectively while another 110 were ready to take the oath of citizenship of the country.
