Mr George Annor as Ghana Ambassador to Italy – Ghanaian students message to the President

Have you ever asked yourself the general responsibilities and duties of an ambassador or do you know the criteria for choosing someone as an ambassador? Hope you do not. We had this important message in our inbox and we want to share with you. Some University students in Italy appeal to the President of Ghana.

In Italy the reputation of our dear nation has been refurbished in reference to matters regarding political stability and democratic affairs. The university students of Italy congratulate our patriots for their sentimental addiction to our nation: thanks for putting Ama Ghana first, thanks for your patriotism.

We are of the view that these patriotic sentiments should guide us in all issues concerning our country in its daily affairs especially in the choosing of our representatives in various offices. On these basis we all agree that patriotism should be privileged as a criteria in selecting our next ambassador, a position which best fit Mr George Annor, the founding father of NPP-Italy. As a high figure his qualities are known to all ghanaians living in Italy for his humanity, blended with innate diplomacy making him the right candidate to get the job done.

His contribution to the growth of Ghana began during the NPP administration under Ex President Kufuor, when he led some investors and construction firms that brought innovations and improvements in the lives of many Ghanaians. Even during the NDC governance many investors looked up to him to be able to operate in Ghana but these efforts were vanished due to economic instability and power problems.

In 2005 he was directly empowered by the ELEPHANTS to create an NPP branch in Italy( official document attached to the present article). His devotion to the ELEPHANTS was marvelous that he did a great job in many provinces and towns creating and rooting various chapters. If ROPA will be implemented, NPP-Italy is ready thanks to the great job done by Mr. Annor.

In 2006 he was delegated to represent the Italian community during the presidential primaries, out from which Nana Addo was nominated for the first time as flagbearer.

Many of us remember the great job that NAFOP(Nana Addo For President), Mr Annor was one of the founding leader together with various important personalities such as S.K. Boafo, Kofi Ghana,Almighty Kennedy Agyapong and others.

After the controversial 2012 elections, he coordinated Ghanaians in various european countries belonging to the group “Let My Vote Count”. In Italy he used his family residence as a guarantee to obtain permission for the sons of the ELEPHANTS  to demonstrate and express freely their views on what was happening back home.

Mr. Annor exhibited his diplomatic qualities in 2014 when he led a delegation to meet “Club Madrid”, an association inaugurated in Spain , composed of former Heads of State of many countries. In this occasion he “shook hands” with dignitries such as Alhassan Obasanjo, Bill Clinton. At the same venue, our Ex President H.E John Agyekum Kufuor introduced to him Dott. Francesco Monici the President of “camera di commercio Italy- Ghana”(chamber of commerce italy-Ghana) with whom he collaborated and grew strong relations. Thanks to the relations with Francesco, security measures which Nana Addo himself described as unprecedented were provided during his campaign visit in Italy in june 2016.

In 2016, Mr Annor was the founder and chairman for “grassroot for Nana Addo” in Ghana. A movement with coordinators in all the ten regions that pulled many votes to champion the cause of Nana Addo. The new aim of the group is to operate in remote areas bringing changes in the lives of the people and helping H.E Nana Addo fulfil his promises made to Ghanaians.

In Italy Mr. Annor partecipates in various associations helping his natives in the obstacles they face in another man’s land. He makes us feel at home. He is aware of our passport renewal stresses and the inefficiencies in the methodology used in various operations in our Embassy situated at Rome. He can surely create the conditions to kick out these problems.

In these years the relationship between Italy and Ghana is improving but the advantages taken from it is less than what we can gain. Mr Annor is ready to persuade more investors from Italy to invest in all sectors and pull up our economy.

Negotiation for scholarships for senior high school graduates is also a key role Mr. Annor can fully play. With his diplomacy he can obtain enrollments in many italian universities for students with good grades.

We believe in strong relationship created between Ghana and Italy. We believe in Mr. Annor, a rigorous man capable of strengthening this relationship. We believe this relationship can be transformed into development.
