India gov’t donates $1m for ‘renovation’ of Flagstaff House

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo on Tuesday received a $1 million donation from the government of India for any renovation works that the seat of Ghana’s government, the Flagstaff House, may require.
The donation was made on behalf of the government of India by Minister of State for External Affairs M.J. Akbar, who called on President Akufo-Addo at the presidency.
It was a courtesy call to mark the Asian nation’s 70th anniversary. “Today is not only a celebration of the last six or seven decades, but is also a celebration of the next 6 decades, and the birth of a new partnership that will make Ghana such a valuable destination for India,” Minister Akbar said.
“Together, we defeated colonisation. Together, as partners, we must define the future of the 21st century, by lifting our nations and taking them to the economic and equity forefront of the world.
Our responsibility is to give the generations of the future an equally dramatic change so that we can also belong to, what is conventionally called, the best of the First World,” he added.
He applauded the policies and programmes being implemented by the Akufo-Addo-led government.
