President arrives in Ethiopia

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, on Saturday, arrived at Addis Ababa, Ethiopia to attend the 28th African Union (AU) Summit.

The Summit is on the theme “Harnessing the Demographic Dividend through Investments in Youth.”

The President was met on arrival by the country’s High Commissioner to Ethiopia and other high ranking officials at the Ghana High Commission.

He was escorted to the High Commission where he swore Ms Shirley Ayorkor Botchwey into office as Minister of Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration.

Ms. Botchwey could not join her colleagues to be sworn in last Friday evening because she was part of the President’s advance team to the AU Summit.

President Akufo-Addo charged her to discharge her duties well and help his government to improve the living conditions of Ghanaians.

“Ghanaians voted for a change in the quality of the governance, a change in the management of the national economy and a change in the national attitude. That is why we are here, that is why they voted for us so overwhelmingly. Together we shall deliver.”

“The Ghanaian people want a government that would protect the public purse and ensure value for money. We cannot fail and we must not fail,” he charged the minister.

Ms Botchwey, on her part, pledged to support the President and promised to serve the Ghanaians well.
