President asks envoys to advertise Ghana

mahamaPresident John Dramani Mahama on Friday advised Ghanaian envoys to advertise the nation by portraying the good virtues that had over the years placed the West African country on the world map.

He said: “As representatives of Ghana we expect you to use your experience and influence to work in partnership with your respective countries to bring mutual benefits.”

President Mahama said this when he swore-in and presented letters of credence to two new envoys who are embarking on their duty tours to the Czech Republic and the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

The envoys are; Mr William Azumah Awinador-Kanyirige, Ghana’s High Commissioner to Nigeria and Mrs Saba Zita Okaikoi, Ambassador to the Czech Republic.

President Mahama said the Czech Republic has been a major partner of Ghana by contributing immensely towards Ghana’s industrialisation programme under Dr Kwame Nkrumah’s administration.

He mentioned the GIHOC Shoe Factory in Kumasi, Aboso Glass Factory and the ceramics factories as some of the projects the Czech Republic helped in establishing in Ghana.

President Mahama urged Mrs Okaikoi to leverage the cordial relations to create a fertile ground for the more cooperation.

On Nigeria, the President said it is not only the largest country in the Africa, but also the largest economy and working in partnership with the country would solidify the already good relations.

He said although government is having challenges in the acquisition of accommodation for the Missions, the Ministry of Finance is working hard to settle the issue on permanent basis.

Mrs Okaikoi, on behalf of her colleague commended President Mahama for challenging them with their appointments.

She gave the assurance that they would work hard to justify the confidence reposed in them.
