08/02/2018

The High Commissioner H.E Adjei commends Australian National University African Students Association for creating a platform for the African students to be able to share ideas and also to showcase the rich and diverse culture of Africa to the Australian community enabling them to have a better understanding of our continent.

This was at the meeting of the High Commissioner with the Executives of the Australian National University African Students Association (ANUASA) at the premises of the Ghana High Commission.

The team was led by Acting President Miss Eddah Lijoni from Malawi. The purpose of the meeting was to introduce the Association and its activities, which includes getting Ambassadors of African Missions represented in Australia to take part in panel discussions to enlighten Australians and the World on Africa. According to the General Secretary of the Association, Mr Thabani Zondo, they were trying their possible best to raise the African flag high. He continued “We are making sure that Africa gets noticed through academic and social activities.”.

On his part, the High Commissioner H.E Adjei commended the Association for creating a platform for the African students to be able to share ideas and also to showcase the rich and diverse culture of Africa to the Australian community ensuring a better understanding of our continent. He noted that “For so many people outside Africa and in other parts of the world, they often don’t get to know Africa as they should…there are still many people who think that Africa is just one country and sometimes they don’t even comprehend the fact that we have different parts. He indicated that the students were ‘‘Ambassadors of Africa and partners with the African missions'' in Australia. The High Commissioner concluded by imploring the students to be diligent in their studies in order to acquire knowledge and the requisite skills which will enable them contribute positively to the development of Africa when they return to their respective countries.
