This consists of 2 English-speaking countries of West Africa. There are at present 39 confreres originating from this province.
At the turn of the 19th Century the French Government was becoming more and more anti-clerical. Missionaries of Africa in French West Africa (now Burkina Faso) were afraid that they would be expelled from French territory. At this time, across the border in what is now Ghana (then British territory) the local administrator was a Catholic who invited some Missionaries of Africa to found Missions in the Northern Territory (now Upper East, Upper West and Northern Regions of Ghana). They began their mission there in 1905 with great success. Many years later the confreres in Nigeria and those in Ghana were linked together to become the Province of Ghana-Nigeria. There are at present 38 Missionaries of Africa originating from Ghana-Nigeria Province.
