Ghana has been rated as the sixth country in a list of the top 10 destinations for Americans, ahead of Singapore, Sweden, New Zealand and Spain.
The list was compiled by travelandleisure.com prioritizing safety, economic and political stability, quality of life, access to culture, and the great outdoors in the target countries.
The countries that ranked higher than Ghana according to the enlisted criteria were Portugal, Costa Rica, South Korea, Canada, and Austria.
Ghana was described as a quick-paced country in West Africa that is rolling out the welcome mat for American expatriates seeking the affordable cost of living, booming business opportunities, low crime rates, and stable democracy.
It was indicated that there is a program to fast-track citizenship for African Americans planning to leave the U.S., and a new program to entice residents to keep their talents in the country for at least 10 years.
The cosmopolitan capital of Accra was also suggested to offer reasonable rents, while job hunters have their pick of social support groups, networking events, and associations to join.
Outside of the city, one can explore the country's tropical beaches, national parks, and waterfalls, as well as one of the many UNESCO-listed forts and castles.
In another report showcasing the Ghanaian culture and spirit, Isaac Donkor, a Ghanaian Bolt driver, is being hailed on social media for his courageous honesty after returning an iPhone 11 Pro Max that a passenger mistakenly dropped inside his car.
Recounting the story on his personal Facebook handle, Kofi Gbedemah indicated that when Isaac found the phone, he picked it up to receive a call that came through, assuring that he would return it.
True to his words, Isaac returned the phone all the way to Dansoman and refused to take any compensation or fuel money for his kind gesture.
