By

The President of Seychelles, Wavel Ramkalawan, has requested for more Ghanaian teachers to be sent to his country to help in boosting the education system.

Already, five Ghanaian teachers are in the country and it is believed that their quality output and excellent delivery has culminated in this request. An agreement to that effect is in the offing.

This came to light when Ghana’s Ambassador to Seychelles, Charles Asuako Owiredu presented his accreditation to President Ramkalawan at the State House in Victoria.

Mr Owiredu was given full diplomatic reception including a guard of honour mounted by the military and a red carpet treatment after which he presented the credentials and had a brief interaction with the President.

Speaking after the meeting, Mr Owiredu noted that his discussions with President Ramkalawan centred on ways to reinforce the existing bonds between the two nations for the mutual benefit of their peoples.

Mr Owiredu also noted that Seychelles and Ghana have signed five agreements among those a general cooperation agreement, avoidance of double taxation, visa waiver for both countries, and re-exportation of tuna from Seychelles.

The High Commissioner also called on Vice President Ahmed Afif. Later he paid a courtesy call on the Speaker of the National Assembly, Roger Mancienne, Designated Minister Jean-François Ferrari, ministers, Dean of the Diplomatic Corps and the Secretary-General of the Seychelles Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
