    Secretary General of the Department of Moroccan Expatriates at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, African Cooperation and Moroccan Expatriates, Ismail Lamghari told the press that this meeting comes after the 9th meeting of the Ministerial Commission for the affairs of Moroccan Expatriates and migration, held last August under the chairmanship of the Head of Government, Aziz Akhannouch, and devoted to the examination of the means promoting the implementation of the High Royal Directions, contained in the Royal speech on the occasion of the 69th anniversary of the Revolution of the King and the People.

    More Ghanaian Students Pick the United States for Higher Education

    Ghanaian students continue to choose the United States as a top destination for higher education.

     The 2022 Open Doors Report released today confirms that 4,916 Ghanaian students studied at U.S. colleges and universities during the most recent (2021-2022) academic year. 

    This represents a 16 percent increase over the previous year and continues a long-term growth trend among Ghanaian students.

    “U.S. higher educational institutions offer world-class learning experiences. 

    Our team has worked hard to help students with the application, admission, and visa process this year. 

    We are so proud that more Ghanaian students are choosing the United States,” said U.S. Ambassador to Ghana Virginia Palmer.

    Ghanaian students studied at 700 U.S. colleges and universities in all 50 U.S. states in 2021-2022.

     Among Sub-Saharan African countries, Ghana sends the second-highest number of students (second only to Nigeria). 

    Ghana also now ranks 18th in the world for countries sending students to the United States for graduate programs.

    Following the COVID-19 pandemic, new international student enrollment in the United States rebounded this year – the total number of international students enrolled in U.S. institutions increased four percent. 

    The United States remains the top destination for international education with over 948,000 students enrolled.

    Ghanaian student Philip De-Graft, a freshman at Stetson University in DeLand, Florida, is a member of the school’s Presidential and Bonner Scholar programs. 

    Philip is the first person in his family to attend university. 

    “EducationUSA provided me with reliable information and helped me to select my best fit institution.

     From test preparation to essay review, to the visa process and pre-departure orientation, we had a great relationship. 

    Even after helping me land a full scholarship, EducationUSA’s Opportunity Fund Program helped me pay for the application fee and travel costs,” noted Philip in a conversation with EducationUSA.

    Mohammed Mabrouk Halid was completing his national service at Ghana’s Ministry of Finance and Economic Planning, when he met an alumnus of a U.S. university. 

    Soon enough, with the help of EducationUSA, he was applying for graduate programs in the United States.

     After graduating as a Master of Arts in Finance from Webster University (St. Louis, Missouri), he is now a PhD candidate at University of the Cumberlands.

    “Success is a journey, not a destination,” concludes Halid.

    The U.S. Embassy worked closely with prospective students over the past year, helping students accepted to U.S. colleges and universities navigate the visa process and other preparations. 

    The U.S. Embassy processed more than 7,000 student visa cases in the last fiscal year – breaking all previous records.

    Through EducationUSA, the U.S. Department of State’s network of education advisers, the U.S. Embassy has continued to engage prospective Ghanaian students. 

    Through online and in-person information sessions this year, EducationUSA has reached more than 200,000 Ghanaian students, including nearly 3,000 students who attended EducationUSA’s College Fair in Accra in September 2022.

     EducationUSA maintains Advising Centers in Accra and Kumasi for virtual and in-person student advising.

    This week, a team from the U.S. Embassy is visiting Tamale, Northern Region and Bolgatanga, Upper East Region as part of the American Spaces and EducationUSA Roadshow. 

    With events in both cities, from November 14 through November 17, the team will engage local entrepreneurs in training sessions, as well as local students to provide information on studying in the United States.

    South Africa: National Assembly House Chairperson Frolick Calls for Reform to Make Climate Change Finance Accessible

    National Assembly House Chairperson for Committees, Oversight & ICT, Mr Cedric Frolick, has called for the reform of multilateral lending institutions and their lending policies to increase access to finances to address the climate crisis.

    Mr Frolick leads SA Parliamentary delegation attending the United Nations Climate Change Conference (UNFCCC COP27) currently taking place in Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt, until 18 November.

    He was addressing the Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU) meeting for legislators yesterday organized jointly with the Egyptian House of Representatives in Sharma El-Sheik“We need to reform multilateral lending institutions and their lending policies.

    As things stand the current policies have the potential to bind developing countries on the African continent and elsewhere into long term loans that will result in a debt trap for future generations,” said Mr Frolick, while addressing delegates from more than 150 countries attending themeeting.

    He called on fellow MPs from developed countries to hold their Executives accountable to honour their commitments made at previous COP conferences.

    As an example, he emphasized that the current financial package of $ 8.5bn from the US, EU, UK, France and Germany to South Africa consist of 97% loans and only 3% grants.

    “This places multilateral support out of reach for most developing countries due to its onerous costs and conditionalities.

    It will result in making the attainment of the Paris Agreement very difficult and unimplementable,” said Mr Frolick.

    The meeting adopted an outcome document that emphasizes the need for concrete action by governments and Parliaments around the world to address the urgency of the climate crisis.

    Discussions focused, amongst others, on climate action and sustainable development, prioritizing accountability for climate justice and Parliaments’ role in sustainably powering our future.

    In his closing address the Secretary-General of the IPU, Mr. Martin Chungong, made reference to House Chairperson Frolick’s input that questioned the speed at which developed countries pass emergency budgets for war but are reluctant to meet their financial commitments to combat climate change.

    United States of America (USA)/Morocco/Italy Mediterranean (MED) Trident Exercise to Detect Radiological/Nuclear Materials

    From November 9-11, 2022, Italy, the Kingdom of Morocco, and the United States hosted the Mediterranean (MED) Trident Tabletop Exercise in Rome, Italy in collaboration with the UN Office of Counter-Terrorism (UNOCT), the UN Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), and the European Union (EU).

    The three-day multilateral activity demonstrated best practices and helped to strengthen regional cooperation related to the detection of radiological/nuclear (R/N) materials at maritime ports, crime scenes, and the coordination of subsequent nuclear forensics investigations.

    The exercise developed participant understanding of the applicability of international legal frameworks against acts of R/N terrorism, including the International Convention for the Suppression of Acts of Nuclear Terrorism (ICSANT).

    In addition, the exercise encouraged discussions on the limitations and strengths of different international cooperation mechanisms, promoting dialogue among experts from nearly 20 participating countries and relevant government agencies.

    These included individuals from border control, customs, regulatory authorities, law enforcement, prosecutors, and nuclear forensics experts, among others. 

    Deterring, detecting, and stopping R/N terrorism is of the utmost importance to any nation, and exercises like MED Trident help to bring together experts from a variety of disciplines and nations to share experiences, information, build relationships, and encourage the implementation of national legal frameworks.

    These exercises enable countries to improve their capabilities to deny and disrupt terrorist and other non-state actor acquisition of weapons of mass destruction materials, expertise, and equipment. 

    Italy and Morocco are both key U.S. partners in counterterrorism cooperation, working closely to safeguard our countries’ national security interests.

    Together with the United States and Niger, Morocco and Italy chair the Africa Focus Group of the Global Coalition to Defeat ISIS.

    APGA urges media to provide equal coverage for all candidates

    Professor Peter Umeadi, the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) presidential candidate, has called on the media to provide equal opportunities to all candidates ahead of the 2023 general election.

    Umeadi, in a statement, made the call shortly after receiving the International Ambassador of African Culture award at the 10th Nollywood New Yam Festival in Abuja.

    He also called on the media to use their platforms to bring about positive change in the nation's political system.

    He said that the media was powerful enough to guide people on the right path and also to help produce credible leaders.

    He expressed regret at a situation where some media professionals were biased in their presentations during town hall meetings and other political activities.

    "The denial of equal airtime to all political parties contravenes Section 95 of the 2022 Electoral Act.

    “It is the responsibility of the media to provide a level playing field for all aspirants to make their manifestos known at all political gatherings regardless of the status or popularity of the candidates or aspirants.

    "This will allow the electorate to be well informed about the intentions of the applicants."

    Speaking about the Nollywood Award, Umeadi explained that he had been fond of all efforts that would promote positive cultural values.

    He said that since childhood, he had played positive roles in theater, civic and sports activities in school, after school and during his career in national service.

    While at school at CKC Onitsha in 1971, I played a major role in a popular drama, entitled "Prom Dinner," written by Henshaw.

    "These activities in various ways have helped enormously to engage youth in a positive way and contribute to community development projects."

    The Nollywood Yam Festival's National Program Coordinator, Mr. Onwurah Agility, said the APGA Presidential hopeful's International Ambassador of African Culture award was in recognition of his contributions.

    Agility said the contributions were in terms of youth employment, growth and development of the Nollywood industry, and community development.
