Radio interviews for Ghanaian historian calling for Government apology

Dr Robert Peprah-Gyamfi has been interviewed on radio about launching a petition calling upon the British Government to apologise for the forced conscription of West Africans during the Second World War.

The Ghanaian-born author and historian, a client of author PR agency, this week spoke to stations including BBC Radio 5 Live and BBC Radio London about his West Africa Apology campaign.

He started the petition in a bid to bring “historic restitution” to the estimated 50,000 West African men who served in the British Army and to highlight the “shocking” treatment of 200,000 others.

Many young West Africans were dragged from their homes in the former British colonies of Ghana, Nigeria, Sierra Leone and Gambia, and many more suffered racial abuse and prejudice.

You can learn more about the petition on Robert’s website, www.WestAfricaApology.com, or sign the petition at the Petition.Parliament website.
