Ace journalist and broadcaster Captain Smart of Adom Fm, the official AMBASSADOR of Ghana National Ambulance Service has been appointed Communications Director for the Organisation of Ghanaians Abroad, OGHA.
In the appointment statement, Mr. Osei Mensah Michael, OGHA President, said that, FEGHADE, Federation of Ghanaian Diaspora in Europe, was the major outcome of the Diaspora Engagement Policy meeting organised by Ghana’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, ICMPD and MiEUx of the European Union in Brussels in October 2014.
FEGHADE has not only fruitfully interacted with Ghanaian authorities including the Electoral Commission and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, but also has gone a step ahead to create the Organization of Ghanaians Abroad(OGHA) in order to permit other compatriots outside Europe to join it.
The Organisation of Ghanaians Abroad’s principal objective is to be the mouthpiece, a development support mechanism for Ghana and a welfare booster for Ghanaians living abroad. It is open to all registered national groupings of Ghanaians and personalities of Ghana’s goodwill across the planet.
OGHA isn’t an authority nor an Organisation to lord over others. It is obvious today that, the world has become a global competitive village and Diasporans have become key strategic agents of development hence the need for commitment to the course that will drive the nation Ghana forward through a vibrant unique voice.
Almost every Ghanaian family has relatives in the diaspora today. From remittances to developmental inputs, Ghanaians abroad have become the nation’s greatest offshore asset. Therefore, OGHA seeks assistance and support in order to harness diasporans full participation in Ghana’s progress and development.
With Captain Smart, we all aknowledge the privilege to have a highly popular and effective universal broadcaster. We hope to use his expertise, talent and attributes to move the relationship between Ghana and its Diaspora to a level of excellence.
