President John Dramani Mahama has assured Ghanaians that his government has engaged all partners to minimize the risk of terrorist attacks in the country.

He made this known in a speech read on his behalf by the Minister for Interior, Prosper Bani at the launch of the National Migration Policy for Ghana in Accra.

It has been estimated that about 45,000 Ghanaians crossed the Mediterranean Sea to Italy in 2015 through unapproved routes.

These migrants, comprising young men, risked their lives to travel to Europe.

Reports from international organization for migration (IOM) indicate that there were many significant events relating to migration globally.

The migration crises in the Mediterranean made 2015 one of deadliest years in history.

About 3,772 deaths were recorded, according to the International Organization for Migration.

Ghanaians, 3,995 men and 155 women, 41 accompanied minors and 240 unaccompanied minors, risked their lives to reach Italy in 2015.

As part of efforts to address the challenges, President Mahama pledged to fund the establishment of a Ghana National Commission on Migration in the country.

“Migration has assumed importance in the global agenda, as its potential for economic and social development is increasingly acknowledged.

“Migration is now widely recognized as key to development and poverty reduction.”

He said despite the importance of migration for Ghana’s development, it also presented significant challenges to the country.

Professor Mariama Awumbila of the Centre for Migration Studies, Legon, who read the overview of the National Migration Policy, said the book was formulated against the backdrop of several policy frameworks, including the constitution of Ghana and the Ghana Shared Growth and development agenda.

You’ll Regret For Marrying Owusu Bempah – Bishop Obinim Warns Rev. Owusu Bempah’s 3rd Wife



Bishop Obinim Warns Rev. Owusu Bempah’s 3rd Wife

About weeks ago, Rev. Isaac Owusu Bempah was captured in the news for contracting an unannounced marriage with Abpena Animah who happens to be the third wife of the man of God.

Truth be told, Ghanaians on social media questioned the act of the man of God and the latest to add his voice to the unfortunate issue happens to be the leader and founder of International God’s Way Church, Bishop Daniel Obinim.

According to the controversial man of God who loves to be called ‘Angel Obinim’ has cautioned Abena Animah to act critical else doom awaits in her marriage with Rev. Owusu Bempah.

In a viral video on the internet, Bishop Obinim is seen telling members of his congregation that he feels bad for Abena Animah, the third wife of Prophet Owusu Bempah, since she is likely to meet the same fate of his first and second wives.

“I heard in the news the other time that Rev. Owusu Bempah has married for the third time. I feel sorry for the woman because she should have thought about the previous two first. This means that if she, the third wife makes a mistake, she will also be replaced by number four”.

He added that, he’s certain the marriage will collapse in due time taking into consideration the history behind Rev. Owusu Bempah’s failed marriages. So, if this is anything to go by then it’s likely this relationship won’t last all other things being equal.

“As a third wife, you should not be happy because you are a replacement of the previous two. If the relationship had gone well, you wouldn’t be their replacement”, he confidently said.

Well, as it stands now Madam Abena Animah is happily married to Rev. Owusu Bempah. Therefore, it’s our prayers and fervent hope that they continue to swim in the pool of love devoid of divorce.
