375 diplomatic passports were revoked in Ghana just one week after Wikileaks released documents exposing the corruption of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) and the New Patriotic Party (NPP) governments.
The corruption that led the Atta Mills government to revoke the 375 diplomatic passports was in the way they handled the fight against narcotics in the country.
The diplomatic passports that were revoked include Pastors, Imams, businessmen and chiefs. Not only is there no official word by the government that the passports were revoked because of the passport holders’ connection to drugs, and the government of Ghana flat out denies that the passports were revoked due to the WikiLeaks report.
President of Ghana, Atta Mills, according to the WikiLeaks report, was quoted as telling the American Ambassador in Ghana that he felt that there was a lot of corruption among airport officials and other holders of diplomatic passports.
The decision to revoke the 375 diplomatic passports less than a week after the WikiLeaks report makes one wonder whether these passports would have been revoked had the WikiLeaks report not have been released.
If indeed many of the people whose passports were revoked were involving in the traffic of narcotics, then this may prove to have been an effective strike against the narcotics operation of Ghana.
