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.

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.
