The North Tongu Member of Parliament has lauded the organisation of the Year of Return celebration, describing it as “fantastic.”

Although the MP admitted the celebration has improved the international image of Ghana, he said there were grave issues with the entire organisation.
“Of course there have been other issues of exaggerated data but we can put that aside and celebrate the Year of Return for what it has come to represent,” he told an Accra-based Joy FM Tuesday.
