Her Exellency Mrs. Genevieve Tsegah Ghana's Ambassador to France has paid a maiden visit to the Ghanaian Community of Bordeaux last 26/11/2010. The Ambassador who was accompanied by her consul Mrs. Rita Hagan was responding to an invitation by Michelle Ouvrard aka Nana Akua Oforiwaa President of Batabi Oyoko Akwaaba Association B.O.A. The city Mayor of Cenon near Bordeaux was present to welcome the Diplomats.
B.O.A. organised a ceremony to promote it works. You will recall that BOA has adopted Batabi a village in the Eastern Region of Ghana where it is doing its best to contribute to
elevate lives. Last summer it sent a team of volunteers from France to start the construction of a Kindergarten for the village. The occasion was basically an exposition on what the volunteers did in Ghana.
Ghanaians from all walks of life in Bordeaux under the leadership of their President Mr. Adjekum were present. In a speech Mr. Adjekum expressed overwhelmness over the Ambassador's presence and also thanked the Ghana Government for the level of present democracy in the country. He thanked Me Ouvrard for what her association is doing for Ghana. Mr. Kofi Ansah a Ghanaian artist in Bordeaux brought his group "Kundum" to entertain and welcome the Ambassador and the public.
