Ghana's ambassador to the Federal Republic of Germany, Gina Blay, confirmed this in a tweet where she was seen congratulating the two ladies for pioneering the act.

It is clear that the ministry of Interior, as well as the ministry of foreign affairs and regional Integration, were the ones who awarded the right to the two beautiful Germans.

According to Ghana's laws, anybody who seeks to naturalize as a citizen of Ghana needs to obtain permission from the appropriate ministries and also get approval from the president of the Republic of Ghana.

This process was completed by Michaela and Julia before they were awarded their respective citizenships. Accordingly, they also swore an oath of allegiance to the country's laws and regulations.

Now, they have the rights and privileges of every Ghanaian. They are also required to obey the laws of Ghana as they are now legally bound by them.
