*Attorney Antonio Moore gives a scathing review of the recent celebrity filled trips to the country Ghana on the continent of Africa.
Beyonce, Jay-Z, T.I., Ludacris, Rick Ross, Steve Harvey and others have all made the trip.
The Congressional Black Caucus along with Nacy Pelosi also made the trip presented as part of a return to home for #ADOS Black Americans rather than tourism. Moore breaks down the financial issues that make none of it make any sense.
So why is Ghanaian officialdom so keen on selling the success of the initiative on the tabletop of incoherent statistics and woolly numbers, instead of better cataloging these clear achievements? It is a very strange sight to behold. Various government agencies and supporters of the Year of Return program have bandied around figures such as “200,000” extra international arrivals; “1.5 million” total number of visitors for 2019; and “$1.9 billion” extra tourist spending as statistical milestones of Year of Return programming, with an incredulous press panting to keep up.
