Ghana urged to lead the way for visa-free travels in Africa


Following the establishment of the headquarters of African Continental free Trade Area in Ghana, Mr Prince Bagnaba Mba, President of Forum for Equity, a human rights Non-Governmental Organisation has appealed to the Government to spearhead its implementation.

You don’t visa back home would expand our business frontiers’.

“Our forebears like Dr Kwame Nkrumah’s vision of borderless Africa should be a reality with our commitment to fast tracking of digitisation. Once, the identity is established, there is no need of a visa”.
