President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has charged authorities in Germany to as a matter of importance treat African migrants humanely even if they breach German laws.
Delivering the keynote address at the 5th German-African Economic Forum, under the theme “African Markets, Potentials and opportunities for German Businesses”, in Dortmund, Germany, Mr. Akufo-Addo said the terrible economies of Africa are the very reasons why young Africans are embarking on dangerous trips to better their lot in Europe.
However, the migration challenges on the continent is no reason for the West to manhandle such young and daring Africans.
In his speech, President Akufo-Addo emphasized that African countries will not meet the needs of its peoples if it continues to produce raw materials for the use of the rest of the world.
He added that the time is now for the African continent to industrialize to manufacture end user products for the rest of the world.
