The Head of Office and Representative of UNESCO to Ghana, H.E Abdourahamane Diallo has visited the Accra World Book Capital 2023 Secretariat to familiarise himself with the preparatory processes for hosting the title in 2023. He was accompanied by Mr Carl Ampah, the National Programme Officer, Culture.
Speaking on the purpose of the visit, Mr Diallo said it was to congratulate the team and to afford him the opportunity to acquaint himself with the preparations so far. He assured the Secretariat of his support.
Briefing Mr Diallo on the preparations, Ernesticia indicated that the Secretariat was open for suggestions and collaborations to promote the habit of reading, books, and the Ghanaian culture. She stressed that the programmes for the title year will be implemented not only in Accra, but also throughout the country.
