President Akufo-Addo signs book of condolence in honour of Prince Philip

 




On Wednesday, 14th April 2021, after delivering the keynote address at the National Dialogue on Small-Scale Mining, I went to the British High Commission to sign the book of condolence opened for Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh.


Prince Philip's life had a positive impact on us in Ghana. Over 750,000 young Ghanaians have benefitted from the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme, the great initiative he established in 1956, sixty-five (65) years ago, to unearth talents amongst young people the world over.





 It is now known in Ghana as the Head of State Award Scheme, and I had the honour, two days before his death, of cutting the sod for the construction of its own administrative office building, making Ghana one of the few countries in the world, and the second in Africa, to have such an office. 

His place in Ghanaian history is secure, and we appreciate very much his contact with us.
