The First Deputy Speaker of Parliament, Joseph Osei-Owusu has called on Ghanaian writers, photographers and archivist to actively work to preserve the country’s history by properly documenting accounts/evidences of our country’s historical trajectory.

This, he said, will ensure that the Ghanaian story is told from the Ghanaian perspective, with all its nuances and cultural significances.

The First Deputy Speaker said this when he received a copy of the book, “Remnants of a Haunted Past, from the author and photographer, Yaw Pare.

The author, a Ghanaian born international photographer, said his quest to document places of historical and cultural significance stems from a passion to ensure that the story of the history and cultures of our people are told within the proper contexts.

The book contains photos of parts of the slave trade stories from different parts of Ghana.

Copies were presented to the MP for Awutu Senya West, Gizella Tetteh Agbotui and MP for Klottey Korle, Zanetor Rawlings.
