The mayor of Easton, Pa., has clashed with the Ghanian ambassador in Washington, who tried to undermine a celebration the mayor is planning for the return of a Ghana native who grew up in the small town south of Philadelphia and now calls himself a king.
Mr. Panto added that Mr. Quartey will be accompanied by Azumah Nelson, an ethnic Ga and a former world featherweight boxing champion.
Mr. Panto recently wrote to the ambassador to seek his help with Easton's planned celebration for Mr. Quartey, who is bringing more than 20 Ghanian dancers and musicians with him on his two-week visit beginning June 29.
