Written by | November 6, 2018 | 0
President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has expressed deep concerns over the cold-hearted treatment of African migrants in Europe. When the Deputy Prime Minister of Italy, Matteo Salvini, called on him at the Presidency on Monday, President Akufo-Addo did not mince words when he criticised the inhumane and abusive treatment of African migrants in Europe. He said although the Europeans had every reason to fight against illegal migration, their treatment of migrants, especially illegal migrants, were against the rights and dignity of the offenders.
