The Members of Parliament of the Republic of Ghana have dissented from the government of the United Kingdom’s new visa policy which will see citizens from Ghana and some four other countries pay an amount of £3,000 before a visa is issued.
The call was made on the floor of parliament on Tuesday and the Honorable MP for Tarkwa Nsuaem, Eugenia Kusi argued that government must get back at the policy to treat prospective UK immigrants to Ghana the same.
Other members of the august house shared similar opinion and have all called on the government to retaliate in this developing issue in order to save the sovereignty of the nation.
When implemented, the policy will also have an effect on West African ally Nigeria, India, Pakistan and Bangladesh.
The Deputy Information and Media Relations Minister, Felix Ofosu Kwakye has also reiterated that the case is before the government and it is now assessing it
The new policy was announced barely a week after the bilateral meeting between the government of the two countries [Ghana and UK] during which the two agreed on bilateral support.
