US Vice President Kamala Harris has granted a request by the Paramount chief of the Oguaa, Osabarima Nana Kwesi Atta II to appoint a liaison between Cape Coast and the White House.
Vice President Harris officially appointed Virginia Palmer [America Ambassador to Ghana] as the liaison between the Oguaa Traditional Council and the United States.
According to the chief, the liaison will enhance a cordial relationship between the Whitehouse and the paramountcy to help the latter embark on certain developmental projects through the former’s assistance.
Harris also said she believes a good relationship will help both outfits constitute a stronger bond that will help them relearn history to teach younger generations for their ancestral pride.
The Oguaamanhen further asked for a reciprocal visit to the White House as a show of solidarity between Oguaa and the United States of America.
He added that, Madam Harris’ visit to the Cape Coast Castle will be a moment of reflection for her to ponder over the cruelty of man to their fellow humans.
“I have intentionally not talked about the castle which I know you’re going to visit. Over the years we’ve had President Obama and the wife visiting the castle, we’ve had the wife of President Trump, we’ve had Pelosi and now it’s your turn.
“When you go there, and you carefully look around, you’ll ask yourself so many questions. Why should anybody treat anybody the way our ancestors were treated and this gives a lot of thought but we’re not in those days now,” he indicated.
Vice President Harris will leave Ghana today Wednesday March 29 as she continues her three nation visit to Africa.
