Ghanaian Diplomat In Exile


Issaka Issifu: The Ghanaian Diplomat In ExileGhanaian Diplomat In Exile


As Ghana goes to the polls on December 7, 2012, the choice for many Ghanaians varies but for me it centers on the core ideals declared on the 6th March 1957 when Dr. Kwame Nkrumah deliberately dressed in a northern Ghanaian traditional attire, the “smock,” “Fuugu” or “Bubang Riiga” as we may term it depending on location and our diverse cultural heritage, declared ‘Freedom,’ ‘Freedom,’ to sell unity in Ghana.

Drama At Ministers’ Vetting
Dr. Kwame Nkrumah declared ‘Freedom’... “…the Independence of Ghana is Meaningless unless it is linked up with the total liberation of Africa…” as a socio-political seed for Africa.

In that declaration, Ghana, the beacon on modern democracy in Africa South of the Sahara, took lead with a clear message aimed at fostering “Freedom and Justice.”

It is therefore surprising that 50 years thereafter, a son of the jubilant crowds of Ghanaians from the northern territories would fear alienated not anywhere, but at Ghana’s Embassy Abroad.

Right there at the apex of international quest for “Freedom and Justice” as expressed in modern diplomacy.

This son of Ghana, Alhaji Issaka Issifu, serving as a Consular Officer was humiliated, tortured in some instances, refused his salaries, genuine refunds, allowances, locked overnight at the Ghana chancery in Tokyo, Japan.

Even after I timely contacted both the home and host Ministries of Foreign Affairs respectively, I could only be rescued by a combined Police and Paramedics subconsciously the next day. Subsequently, I, a diplomat (Alhaji Issaka Issifu), without being declared a “persona non Grata” by Japan was refused access to the Chancery of Ghana in Tokyo, Japan (a sanctuary for everyone), by H. E. Ambassador (Dr.) Barfuor Adjei-Barwuah.

This Ambassador, a senior citizen threatened my children and denied me the right to handover my office and duties. He manipulated the Japanese Police (http://Japanese Police), and instructed them to evict me from my official resident while I was preparing to ship my belongings.

All these happened at the watch of the respective Ministries, Departments and Agencies of the Government of the Republic of Ghana under the Kufuor administration. Unfortunately, these abuses occurred directly at the watch of Honorable Nana Addo Dankwah Akufo Addo, then Minister and now the NPP Presidential Candidate for the December elections.

Honorable as he may be a politician, an accomplished Lawyer and a revered senior citizen of our country, Nana avoided his responsibility to serve the interest of all Ghanaians and watched me humiliated despite personal appeals, petitions and threats to our national security.

Since then me and my family currently in exile in the USA, have been fighting and now close to the United Nations with a simple administrative cry of an aggrieved Ghanaian diplomat. At home concerns for my life is prominent to family members as they witness unresolved political assassinations in one of Africa’s most peace nations of all times.

This is so because our politicians seemingly are desperately in a struggle for power to protect their respective interests and those of their political Parties.

Our efforts with the late President, John Evans Atta Mills (May His Soul Rest In Peace) was very helpful but got staled when our security was down played. We were hopeful that gradually that would be understood as we were prepared to mount open protestations in New York when the President suddenly passed.

All kinds of falsehood said about me that are cleared officially, are still unknown to our families, friends and Ghanaians.

So we intend to go out with the case and I am willing to cooperate in any investigations by Ghana if my life and those of family members are guaranteed.

I shall not risk that in empty space and would insist that the Government of the Republic of Ghana responsibly act as expected. Willingly do the right thing; ensure a clean diplomatic recall for me.

Then, if by law it finds me answerable to any case as I am in their custody, I shall respond according.

At that juncture, under the custody of the government, ensuring my safety, the respective authorities can still take any administrative or other decision(s).

For now we shall continue to give out facts and evidence why me and my family were targeted, humiliated, abandoned and officially threatened with CONTRACT KILLERS by officials under the Kufuor government.

We have lost family members, relatives, friends and colleagues because officialdom seeks to protect a known serial abuser, Ambassador (Dr.) Barfuor Adjei-Barwuah, former Ghana’s Envoy to Japan.

My immediate appeal to my friends, colleagues and comrades in power or out of power, is to consider this fight not personal, but the continuity of the struggle in our times to institutionalize the aspirations of our founding fathers, including the direct parents of Nana Addo Dankwah AKufo Addo, a genuinely honest man who perhaps allowed things at his “blind sight” or “blind spot” to degenerate to this levels.

Spinning is of no essence to anyone because most of the facts are getting out into the public starting from now.

Unfortunately some would be graphic and painful. BBC and any Ghanaian news agency are welcomed to investigate and anyone personally interested would receive our maximum cooperation.

We appreciate your Support, people of the world, and anyone can contact our Facebook PAGE “Solidarity Campaign in support for Alhaji Issaka Issifu” for updates.
