Ghana-Togo border to be opened 24/7

Faure Gnassingbe (L) and John Dramani Mahama

Ghana and Togo will soon let their border remain open for 24 hours a day, seven days a week, once negotiations between the technical teams of the two countries are concluded, President John Dramani Mahama said Tuesday.

Addressing a reception ceremony for visiting Togolese President Faure Gnassingbe at the State House, Mahama said Gnassingbe has presented a proposal on the issue, which the technical teams were working on.

He said the 24-hour open border would facilitate the two-way movement of goods and services and enhance free trade between the two nations.

For his part, Gnassingbe said his three-day visit to neighboring Ghana, the first of its kind paid by a sitting Togolese president, was meant to pave the way for bilateral cooperation and build a new harmony that would enhance mutual benefits.

Gnassingbe will also visit the Kwame Nkrumah Memorial Park and the Asomdwee Park, where the remains of Ghana's late President John Evans Atta-Mills were buried.

The highlight of the visit will be at Aflao where the two presidents are expected to inaugurate a railway project.
