As part of the visit, Amb. Akua Dansua and her delegation held a meeting with the Ghanaian Community with an elaborate programme hosted by the Ghana Union – Bremen. It was the first time Her Excellency was visiting a Ghanaian Community in Germany at the invitation of that Community.
In his welcome remarks, the President of the Ghana Union – Bremen, Mr. Owusu Afriyie, expressed gratitude to the Ambassador for honouring the Community with her visit. He stated that the Ghanaian Community in Bremen was working together in unity despite the existence of various ethnic and religious groupings within the Community.
In her remarks, H.E. Akua Sena Dansua expressed gratitude to the Ghanaian Community in Bremen for the warm reception accorded her and her delegation. She was particularly full of praise for the leadership of the Ghana Union – Bremen for organising the programme even at short notice. She briefed the Community on developments at home especially the national economy and ongoing infrastructure projects. She emphasised the importance of unity of purpose amongst the Ghanaian Community in Bremen. She also highlighted the importance of education in personal development and nation building and called on the Ghanaian diaspora to take advantage of the several opportunities in Germany to educate themselves. She especially entreated parents to pay attention to the education of the girl child and to desist from pushing them into early marriages.
During the interactive session that followed, the Ghanaian Community had the opportunity to ask questions, seek clarifications and make comments and suggestions on a variety of subject areas. Known for her dancing passion, H.E. Amb. Akua Dansua could not resist the dance floor as the live band took over the programme and brought the audience on their feet. In all, the programme was a huge success.
