A section of Ghanaians in the United States were at the UN Headquarters in New York on Wednesday, September 20 to show their support and acknowledgment to the President’s leadership in the midst of our challenges.
The President is in New York, USA to participate in the 78th Session of the United Nations General Assembly High Level Political Forum.
The forum is under the theme: “Rebuilding trust and reigniting global solidarity: Accelerating action on the 2030 agenda and our sustainable development goals towards peace, prosperity, progress and sustainability for all.”
The President delivered his national statement with a call for a reformation of the United Nations Security Council to reflect the current challenges and solutions of Africa and the need for reparations for African countries that were hugely impacted by the transatlantic slave trade.
“Granted the current generation are not the ones that engaged in the Slave Trade, but that grant in human enterprise was state-sponsored and deliberate and its benefits are clearly interwoven with the present-day economic architecture of the nations that designed and executed it,” he told the Assembly.
“Reparations must be paid for the Slave Trade,” Ghana’s leader stressed.
