Akufo-Addo swears in 10 new envoys

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has sworn into office and handed over instruments of appointment to ten new ambassadors and high commissioners at a ceremony in Accra.

He reminded the new envoys of the importance of their role. “You also have the onerous responsibility of promoting the image of a country whose reputation amongst the comity of nations continues to be high. You represent a country that, as a result of the commendable conduct of the Ghanaian people, is regarded as one of the most stable on the African continent”.

says the decision to go for a bail out from the International Monetary Fund (IMF) is “to repair, in the short run, our public finances, which have taken a severe hit in very recent times as a result, whilst we continue to work on the medium to long-term structural changes that are at the heart of our goal of creating a Ghana Beyond Aid, that is building a resilient, robust Ghanaian economy.”

In his first comment following last week’s decision to seek IMF support, President Akufo-Addo expressed his confidence that “with determination, hard work, unity, and the proverbial Ghanaian sense of enterprise, we will make it, we will succeed.”

The new envoys are Mrs. Worwornyo Agyeman- High Commissioner to the Republic of Sierra Leone, Mrs. Florence Buerkie Akonor- High Commissioner to the Federation of Malaysia, Mrs. Merene Benyah- Ambassador to the Republic of Italy, Mr. Mohammed Nurudeen Ismaila- Ambassador to the State of Qatar and Ms. Mavis Esi Kusorgbor- Ambassador to the Republic of Angola.

The rest are Mrs. Lydia Ofosua Amartey- Ambassador to the State of Israel, Ambassador Emmanuel Kwame Asiedu Antwi- Ambassador to the Swiss Confederation, Mrs. Emma Mensah- Ambassador to the Republic of Senegal, Ambassador Ahmed Hassan- Ambassador-at-Large, and Mr. Henry Tachie-Menson- Ambassador-in-Situ.

President Akufo-Addo urged them to strive to develop cordial working relations with their teams.

“They have invaluable experience and knowledge of the terrain, which should help you work effectively. You will need their assistance, and they will need your guidance and leadership”.
