Ghana's tourism minister, Barbara Oteng Gyasi, has asked African-Americans to move to her country where they would experience what she thinks is total freedom and peace as opposed to being in the United States.
This was reported by Blackhistory.com in a post sighted by YEN.com.gh and the report suggests that the tourism minister of Ghana made the statement as a solution to the many unfair treatments Black Americans get.
Barbara Oteng Gyasi, it was learnt, made the statement at an event to honour George Floyd in Accra, the capital of Ghana.
The minister declared that her country was in solidarity with the men and women who currently live in fear abroad.
She declared that it was time to end racism in the world just as she prayed that the death of George Floyed and the new order it brought will not be in vain.
She further said Ghana will always open its arms and invite all "our brothers and sisters home."
She called Ghana home to Africans in the US as she reminded them that they have a root.
She urged the African-Americans to take advantage of the gesture to return and begin their lives in Ghana.
"You do not have to stay where you are not wanted forever, you have a choice and Africa is waiting for you," she said.

The report quoted Citinewsroom as saying that the appreciation was given by the family at a funeral service held at the Fountain of Praise Church in Houston, Texas on Tuesday, June 9, 2020.
