Sack Ghana’s Ambassador to Spain – Nana Addo told

   Ghanaian expatriates in Spain have called on the president of the Republic, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to sack his Ambassador to Spain for exhibiting gross disrespect towards them.  According to them, they are tired of the inhumane and unpatriotic attitude hurled against cherished Ghanaians in Spain by Ambassador Elizabeth Agyei, the official who was reappointed by His Excellency Akuffo Addo to serve three(3) more years as Ambassador, after serving as Ghana’s Ambassador to Spain under John Mahama’s Government. They  are however petitioning the president of the day to as a matter of urgency remove her from office for the following reasons: (1) DENIAL OF PASSPORT PROCESSING  She is denying the processing of passports of Ghanaians to secure their stay in Spain; (2) EXORBITANT CHARGES €300 to €500  Even if she agreeds to process the passport, she charges between €300 and €500 which is highly exorbitant as compared to any African country; (3) FORCEFUL JOINING OF ASSOCIATION  Imigration duties has nothing to do with association but the Ambassador through fraudulent and dubious means has formed an association known as  “Ghana Union” .  When a Ghanaian wants a passport and visit the office of the Ambassador to request for one, the Ambassador would direct the person to go to the union Chairman to fill a form.  The Chairman before issuing the form  charges €30 which is not part of the  actual cost of the passport. Such amount is not accounted for because no receipt is given.When the passport is ready too, the Chairman again charges €30 before issuance. Before a passport is given, one have to pay about €500 aside all the aforementioned huge payment. The Ambassador would delay you between six(6) Months and one year before the passport is ready. (4) UNLAWFUL SWITCH OFF PHONES When a Ghanaian goes to the office of the Ambassador to process a passport, she (Elisabeth Agyei) forces them to switch off their phones, a situation they find very strange to understand.  Why should they switch off their phones at the passport office? What is the woman afraid off?  (5) SPEAK ENGLISH OR NO PASSPORT The official language spoken in Spain is Spanish but when a Ghanaian goes to the embassy to process a passport, they are forced to speak English else the Ambassador and her workers would throw you out as a goat, another situation they see as unfathomable.  The Ambassador is behaving as if he is not part of Akufu Addo’s Government. The most annoying issue is that Elizabeth Agyei, who had vowed to amass worth using her office as Ambassador, processes Ghanaian passport to Nigerians at fastest pace and at very moderate cost.   (B) PETITION  Ghanaians living in Spain  hereby petitioning the President Of Ghana, His Excellency Akuffo Addo to as a matter of urgency: 1) tell us the actual cost of processing passport to Ghanaians in Spain, 2) dissolve the Ghana Union which the Ambassador is using to exploit the poor Ghanaian living in Spain, (3) fast track the processes and issuance of passport within one week interval because their survival in Spain resides in the passport. (4) the rule of speak English at Ghana Embassy must be abolished. They are Ghanaians and therefore  must speak Ghanaian language (5) remove Elizabeth Agyei because I am convinced per her actions that she is either  a non Ghanaian or sabotaging the government of President Akufu Addo.  This came to light this morning at a press conference held at the center for national culture in Kumasi today.   The conference was Chaired by, Mr. Opoku Duncan Boateng, Coordinator, Ghanaian Expatriates in Spain   Source /Ayisah Foster
