Ghana’s president, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, says he does not know why the African Union (A.U.) conferred a recent award on him.
The 73-year-old who came to power in 2016 referred journalists to the A.U. President, Alpha Conde, who he said could better explain the reason he was given this year’s ‘A.U. Gender Champion Award’.
He was speaking to a cross-section of journalists during the government’s press meeting to mark six months since he took office.
He, however, observed that the appointment of a sizeable number of women in his government could have earned him the accolade.
‘‘It’s a question that I forgot to pose to Alpha Conde, the president of the A.U. but frankly, I think this is an area that I could still do much better than I have done so far.
