    Here you go. The US Embassy website in Ghana. There is US Citizen Services including getting a replacement passport.

    https://gh.usembassy.gov/

    No. 24, Fourth Circular Rd., Cantonments, AccraP.O. Box GP 2288Accra, GhanaPhone: +233 (0) 30 274 1000

    If you made it through airport security and actually got on the plane, you get stopped at Customs and Immigration, taken aside, and expect at least an all-day event proving who you are and getting in someone to vouch for you. Expect to be treated like a terrorist, because they don't know otherwise. It's annoying enough to get stopped over a packet of beef jerky.

    ANY person that loses their passport contacts first local police to report the loss and then their governments consular/embassy officials for replacement documentation.

    The consular staff can assist in getting documentation that allows you to return home.

    Having a return ticket is a minor issue but does help in confirming your need for speedy assistance.

    @A.J. has given you the link for the assistance place in Ghana.

    IF there is time it could be a replacement passport or just an emergency travel document to get you home ( back to your country).

    Go to the nearest US consulate and talk to them to make arrangements.  You will need a passport even if you already have your airline ticket (that is independent of crossing borders legally).

    He contacts the US embassy in Ghana who will provide him with emergency travel documentation.
