President of Togo Faure Gnassingbe met with Prime Minister Netanyahu in Jerusalem as more and more African countries are opening up to Israel. Togo may be one of the poorest countries in West Africa, but it offers Israel a lot of potential in it’s positioning on the Gold Coast next to Ghana.
Very little people know of Israel’s success story in Ghana through companies like STL who are heavily involved in building Ghana’s infrastructure. With Israel’s potential partnership brewing just east of Ghana, Israel is set to do in West Africa, what it did in the East.
Togo is essentially an open slate, ripe for a country like Israel to step in and help propel it forward. With Ghana and Togo, and Benin itching to hop on the wagon, Israel is quickly building up a buffer zone in order to protect sub-Sahara Africa from Jihadists.
