Ex Ghanaian-US Prisoner Says US Prison is Far Better than President Mahama’s Ghana After Having Been Deported to Ghana 3 Months Ago
Osei Owusu Sekyere, a 38 year old Ghanaian from Bekwai who spent 4 years in a US prison for failing to pay taxes and argued in court during his trial that he rather used the money for taxes to pay his tithes has asserted that, he wishes he was left to rot in a US prison instead of having been deported to Ghana.
About 5 years ago, US tax officers found out that Osei Owusu had been working about 17 hours a day with huge earnings—yet without any tax having been paid for almost 2 decades.
During his trial, it emerged that he owed as much as 300,000 dollars in taxes which he did not dispute and owned 2 houses in Cuba and Mexico. He erected a series of arguments that indirectly he paid his taxes to the church in a form of his month tithing—the paying of 10 percent of his income to the church.
As an illegal immigrant, he was deported to Ghana after serving his 4 years prison sentence and just 3 months in Ghana, he has contacted the US Embassy to inquire about the possibility of being sent back to his US prison cell, because staying in Ghana is worse—-somewhat a transfer from a stable prison with good benefits to a chaotic inhumane one, a breach of his human rights.
Of course the US Embassy has not and would not reply him—because, he has no right to be re-deported to any US prison and even if he commits a new offence here, he will serve his punishment in a Ghana prison and not that of United States.
As to why Osei Owusu Sekyere is saying President Mahama’s Ghana is worse than a US prison, he claims; asking for why simply implies that, you do not live in Ghana because the evidence is apparent of which the classic ones are, he can’t even afford common electricity and decent 3 square meals.
