A statement issued by EMH Global on behalf of FCI, said the High Commissioner shared his testimony of how his steadfastness to his faith had held him strong in his over 20 years as a politician.

He also used the opportunity to advise Ghanaians in the UK to be good citizens, hardworking, ambitious and law abiding.

Touching on the need for Ghanaians in the UK to seek the wellbeing of Ghana, Papa Owusu-Ankomah said it was the responsibility of every Ghanaian to pray for the peace and prosperity of Ghana regardless of their political affiliation, as a prosperous and peaceful country is a blessing to all.

He emphasised his commitment to use his office as the High Commissioner to unite Ghanaians in the UK and extended an invitation to all Ghanaians in London and its environs to a grand durbar scheduled to take place at the Ghana High Commission on Saturday August 19, 2017.
