PRESIDENT AKUFO-ADDO ATTENDS 60TH ANNIVESARY OF THE FOUNDING OF THE NON-ALIGNED MOVEMENT

The President of the Republic, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, left Ghana on Sunday, 10th October 2021, to lead the Ghanaian delegation to attend the 60th anniversary ceremony of the founding of the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM), which is being held in Belgrade, Serbia.

The Non-Aligned Movement is a forum of one hundred and twenty (120) developing states that are not formally aligned with any major power bloc. After the United Nations, it is the largest grouping of states worldwide. Ghana’s first President, President Kwame Nkrumah, was one of the five historic founding fathers of the Movement, together with Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru of India, President Ahmed Sukarno of Indonesia, President Gamel Abdel Nasser of Egypt, and President Josip Broz Tito of the then Yugoslavia, who launched the Movement in Belgrade.

Whilst attending the Conference, President Akufo-Addo will deliver a statement on the floor reaffirming Ghana’s commitment to the principles of the Movement. The President will hold bilateral talks with his Serbian counterpart, His Excellency Aleksandar Vučić, aimed at strengthening the ties of co-operation between the two countries. He is also expected to meet the Prime Minister of Algeria and the Foreign Minister of Saudi Arabia, on the sidelines of the Conference, to discuss matters of mutual interest.

The President was accompanied by the Minister for Foreign Affairs, Hon. Shirley Ayorkor Botchwey; the daughter of Ghana’s first President, Hon. Samia Nkrumah, the former Member of Parliament for Jomoro and former Chairperson of the Convention People’s Party; and officials of the Presidency and Foreign Ministry.

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, a former Deputy Foreign Minister is Ghana’s High Commissioner to South Africa with accreditations to Seychelles, Mauritius, Lesotho and Eswatini. He is based in Pretoria, South Africa.

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.

He indicated that the meeting with the president went well and the discussions was on how to strengthen the relationship further.

“We already have five Ghanaian teachers here and the president thinks that it will be good if we increase the number of teachers. That will be part of the agreement we are seeking to establish with Seychelles,” Mr Owiredu added.

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.

“So far we are doing well. Seychelles is doing well in the tourism sector due to the boldness of the president and the measures taken by the government. I want to take this relationship a notch higher to try and help each other. Ghana can also learn so many things from Seychelles,” Owiredu explained.

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.

Mr Owiredu also met with members of the Ghanaian community living in Seychelles.
