His Excellency the Ghana High Commissioner to the United Kingdom & Ireland Papa Owusu-Ankomah yesterday joined the Ghanaian Methodist Fellowship-UK Chaplaincy at Methodist Central Hall, Westminster. The High Commissioner who only arrived in London about four weeks ago was accompanied by his wife Mrs Augustina Owusu-Ankomah.
Papa Owusu-Ankomah said he has heard a lot about the fellowship and though he had received several invitations in the past to come and visit he couldn’t honour the invitations. He is therefore pleased that he is able to come with his wife to fellowship. He said he shouldn’t be regarded as a guest but rather a member of the fellowship. The High Commissioner recounted his experience with some of the members of the fellowship at Wesley Methodist Church, Sekondi, Ghana.
The High Commissioner said he would seek to deepen the engagement with the Ghanaians in the diaspora and the UK diplomatic mission. He said there are lots of competent Ghanaians in the diasopora and he would be talking to them about investment in Ghana.
Papa Owusu-Ankomah asked the members of the Ghanaian Methodist Fellowship to pray for him and Ghana. The Chaplain of the fellowship Rev William Davis who was a junior of Papa Owusu-Ankomah at Mfantsipim School CapeCoast, Ghana assured the High Commissioner that the fellowship will always pray for him to be successful.
Papa Owusu-Ankomah is a staunch member of the Methodist Church Ghana and has served in many offices.
