I have been participating in a number of activities put together by the Korea-Africa Foundation to commemorate the 2023 Africa Day here in Seoul, and it is clearer more than ever that Africa is where hope resides.
On the occasion of this year’s commemoration, I celebrate the unity, strength, and diversity of the African continent.
Ours is a resource-rich and dynamic continent with a growing and vibrant youth population; full of endless potential and promise — a place with great prospects on the horizon for building the Africa we all want.
Today provides another opportunity to honour visionaries like Dr. Kwame Nkrumah, Emperor Haile Sellasie and Gamal Abdul Nasser who laid the foundation for our continental unity and promoted the ideals of pan-Africanism.
We must commend the many others who, in succeeding years, have strived to promote continental peace, development and integration, like Ghana did when under my preside.
