"It is bittersweet to be here today to participate in a "farewell luncheon." I always welcome the opportunity to engage with the American business community, but it is sad that it’s already time to start thinking about saying goodbye to Ghana," he said.

"While travel, scheduling conflicts, and the imminent departure of many of my team led us to convene this 'farewell" event in March, just know that "I am not leaving yet!," he added.

He also reminded the gathering that he still had up to July to enjoy the Ghana air.

Ambassador Robert Jackson will be remembered by many Ghanaians for homosexuality comments and the controversy over the Ghana-US defence agreement than for his numerous role helping improve literacy, health, and growing Ghana-America business relations.
