(Togo First) – Between September and October 2022, 1,342 Togolese received their certificate of citizenship. According to Togo’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the recipients live in Gabon, Côte d’Ivoire, Mali, and Nigeria.

The Ministry added that more diaspora members should obtain the certificate soon. “731 applications are currently being transcribed by the technical services of the Ministry of Territorial Administration, before being processed by the Directorate of Seal, Nationality, and Civil Identity,” it wrote in a statement dated June 12, 2023.

The certificate issuance operation aligns with Lomé’s policy for protecting the interests of the Togolese diaspora, and getting them to “be more involved in the country’s development process.”

To this end, let’s recall, the government set up, in 2019, the High Commission for Togolese Abroad (HTCE)–an organization that acts as a bridge between the government and the diaspora.
