He made this known when he paid a courtesy call on Ghana’s Minister for Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration, Shirley Ayorkor Botchwey.

The meeting afforded him the opportunity to enquire from Madam Ayorkor Botchwey about progress that has been made to grant diplomatic clearance for Pakistan’s navy and hospital ships that are expected to arrive at the port of Tema by the end of November 2019.
