Ghana’s Beyond The Return, designed to be the sequel to the explosive Year Of Return campaign that brought over 700,000 people of African descent to Ghana in 2019 is set to kick into gear with the waning of the coronavirus pandemic.
One of the first major personality to answer the call to lead a team to Ghana is Queen Afua, an initiate of the Shrine of Ptah and Chief Priestess of Purification in the temple of Nebt-Het, and ancient Afrakan Order.
On Tuesday, at an intentionally small and controlled event in the plush La Palm Royal Beach Hotel in Accra, The Beyond The Return team comprising heads of Ghana Tourism Authority, The Diaspora Affairs office of the President, and Ghana investment Promotion Center officially welcomed Queen Afua and her delegation of wellness advocates to Ghana.
Each member of Queen Afua’s delegation was decorated with the colorful signature Kente stoles bearing the Beyond The Return inscription and logo.
In a speech officially welcoming the delegation, Akwasi Agyeman of GTA thanked Queen Afua for her love for Ghana and how her decision to invest in the country could open a long sought after floodgate.
GIPC’s Yofi Grant in his speech reminded the guests that Ghana is now the hottest investment destination on the continent because of the reforms that His Excellency President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has instituted over the past four years.
Director of the diaspora Affairs Office of the President pointed to the overwhelming response to the Year of Return and expressed the hope that the sequel Beyond The Return would achieve the desired responss as well.
In an exclusive interview with DNT after the ceremony, Queen Afua revealed that she and her team have been planting seeds to make Ghana the place to come to for wellness. She said she and her team plan on experiencing Ghana through food (the vegan versions), arts, and culture.
