They are Mr. Frank Okyere, Ghana’s Ambassador to Japan; Eric Odoi-Anim,

The President admonished them to work closely with the Ministries and Agencies

Additionally, President Akufo-Addo advised the 3 new envoys to develop cordial
working relations with the professional Foreign Service officers they will find at
their duty posts, and also with members of the Ghanaian communities in their
respective countries.

“Ghana is on very good and cordial terms with all the countries to which you
have been posted. Our bilateral relations span several decades, and our ties of
co-operation remain strong. Your role is to deepen these even further, as well as
explore other areas of effective co-operation, which will inure to the mutual
benefit of our respective populations,” President Akufo-Addo added.
