Major road construction works in Ghana have come to standstill after the Chinese Government withdrew $4 billion of it’s investment in the country.

The decision came as a result of what they term as “betrayal” on the side of Ghanaian Government for not using Chinese as the country’s second language as promised.

Education Minister announced months ago that Chinese language will be taught in Ghana schools as part of promise made to the Chinese government but Ghana’s foreign minister announced yesterday that Ghana has chosen French as its second language.

According to a Press Release by the Chinese Minister of foreign affairs, China will no longer provide aid to Ghana and all its investment will be withdrawn.

A copy of the release sent to the Jubilee House is what you see below:

Our Chinese correspondent, Baffour Gyawu, explains the letter written in Chinese. According to him, it simply means “It’s over”.
