This was followed with visit by Mr Siaw to London to meet with Book Aid team. Alison Tweed paid a reciprocal visit to Ghana in July 2018 to assess the state of the Ghana library.   The two Executives agreed on the need to revive libraries in Ghana through making available, new and appropriate materials that meet the aspiration of library users in Ghana.   Mr. Siaw, during his analysis, explained that past policies, as well as inertia on the part of the GhLA, have all contributed to the stagnation of growth at GhLA. He was happy to note, however, that the current President, H E Nana Addo Danquah AKufo-Addo, as well, the Minister of Education, Hon. Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh are all personalities who deeply cherish and have the development of libraries in their immediate priorities. “Fortunately for the GhLA, our current President has an astounding interest in Education, and he is committed to ensuring quality learning environments for everyone, especially children, hence the renewed commitment to strengthen the public library system to deliver on its mandate Mr. Siaw, affirmed.”   ‘’In the past few months, GhLA has created the largest book Processing Unit for any public library system in West Africa. We have established a new Acquisition and Distribution Unit, all in a bid to support the transformation of libraries in Ghana’’. He added. Alison Tweed after the signing stated that “Book Aid International is proud to be partnering with the Ghana Library Authority as it works to become once more a first class service to the general public. We urge all those who want to read for pleasure or to improve their life chances to use their local libraries, where they will soon find brand new up to date books on all subjects donated by Book Aid International. We commend Mr Siaw, his team and all at the Ministry of Education for this renewed commitment to the importance of libraries for national development”. Ghana Library Authority will be receiving Books of commercial value of over half a million British pounds per year, unprecedented in recent years of the agency. This will compliment other government investments in book acquisition to resource libraries in the country.]]>

Published

on

A young Ghanaian man narrated a sad incident that happened in his life last year, when he was deported from Canada, just right after he arrived at the airport.

In a video cited on the RIDE AND CHAT YouTube channel, he shared how he had managed to save up to 60,000 Ghana Cedi before the idea of travelling and working outside the country started. He spoke to a group of people he believed were into travel documentation. The trip was organized and then he left Ghana, but things went sour for him upon arrival at the Canada airport, he called the person who was supposed to come to pick him up. To his surprise, the person didn’t pick up his calls.

He continued by saying, he became stranded and didn’t know what to do since that was his first time travelling out of Ghana. While he was at the airport looking stranded, the security team worked with him and interrogated him. The security team even proceeded to help him reach the person who was supposed to pick him up, but he didn’t pick up.

The only option was for him to be deported, but ever since he arrived in Ghana, things haven’t been easy for him. It took prayers and the timely intervention of his pastor that saved him from committing suicide after he had mixed batteries to drink.
