Former president of Ghana, John Agyekum Kufuor, on Sunday, December 2, unveiled a glittering Christmas tree by Kempinski Gold Coast Hotel in Accra.
The General Manager of Kempinski Gold Coast City Hotel, Manish Nambiar, said the tree lighting ceremony is a tradition, which brings together all their cherished clients, guests, family and friends.
“As we partake in the festive cheer and magic of the season, may we remember to share warmth and happiness and be thankful for the year that has passed and the year to come. Afehyiapa,” he added.
According to Manish Nambiar, the festive period is “our favourite time of the year where the hotel is in full swing with special events to make everyone merry.”
The event attracted a host of dignitaries including Evangelist Lawrence Tetteh, Member of Parliament for Klortey-Korle constituency, Dr. Zanetor Rawlings, Ghanaian-born ex-French footballer, Marcel Desailly among others.
The former President wished the country well this Christmas and prayed for prosperity in the coming year.
