He said that he will forever cherish the date he was made a Ghanaian citizen.
“For me December 22 was the day I received my citizenship and that would carry tremendous meaning to me going forward. I would acknowledge the day every year going forward” he said confidently.
Ghanaians commend American lawyer for gaining citizenship

This makes me a proud African (from Angola)!! We are one people!
He is so wise and educated! We need people like him to lead the way!
Myself and 3 family members have booked tickets to be there in April. I'm so excited! It's like a dream. Never even thought about Africa until about 2 years ago, now it's a strong desire in my body to go.
I'm African American. My DNA test has me listed as majority Ghana, Angola, Democratic Republic of Congo. So I would probably do my renaming ceremony in Ghana
Wow that's great! May our Africa great God's continues bless you bother!!
