Members of the Cuban trained Ghanaian professionals have impressed on government to grant them permission to name a location in Ghana after the late Cuban leader, Fidel Castro.
The group known as Esbecans made the call when they visited the residence of the Cuban Ambassador to Ghana Pedro Louis Gonzalez.
According to the Esbecans, Ghanaians can best celebrate the legacy and policies of the revolutionary leader, if a monument is raised in his honor or a specific location in Ghana is dedicated to his memory.
Presenting the petition through the Cuban Ambassador, president of the group Kofi Asafo Agyei, said the act will strengthen the already existing Cuba–Ghana relations.
“Fidel Castro and Cuba as a whole, has contributed immensely to the socio-economic development of Ghana and just as it has been done for others who contribute to the history of the world, the contributions of Fidel Castro cannot be overlooked in Ghana and our plea will be a step in the right direction”.
The Esbecans who are made up of medical doctors, engineers, pharmacists, accountants and a host of professionals expressed their gratitude to the Cuban Embassy and also signed the book of condolence, in memory of the revolutionary leader.
