Three diplomats who have brought their duty tour of Ghana to an end today called on the President of the Republic, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo, to bid the country farewell.
Outgoing Ireland Ambassador to Ghana, Sean Hoy, outgoing United Nations (UN) Resident Coordinator in Ghana, Christine Evans-Klock, and outgoing Switzerland Ambassador to Ghana, Mr. Markus Nicklaus Paul Dugly, constituted the three envoys who are departing the country.
The Irish Ambassador who has served for four years in Ghana, was first to call on the President at the Ceremonial Room. In a brief address, Ambassador Hoy, said even though he is based in Nigeria where the Irish Embassy is located, he has fond memories of the times he spent in Ghana during the period of his duty tour particularly when it came to security. He indicated that his country through his successor will be expanding relations with West Africa and Ghana will certainly be one of the key countries within the sub region that will benefit from the expanded relations. President Akufo Addo, in his submission congratulated the Irish envoy on his new appointment to Brazil. He expressed hope that in the not so distant future, Ireland will establish a permanent consulate in Accra.
