The French Ambassador, Anne Sophie-Avé, together with her manager and team were in Kumasi and some parts of the Bono region as part of her ‘Meet and Connect” initiative.

According to her, the initiative was propelled by the hospitality exhibited by Ghanaians to her after her appointment in the office.

In an interview, she said, as a result of this kind gesture from Ghanaians, “I decided to embark on a ‘Thank You’ tour to show my appreciation and also meet and connect with the youth in Kumasi and Sunyani.”

The French Ambassador, during her tour, also visited the chiefs and people of Begho in the Bono Region, where she was installed as the Nkosuahemaa (Development Queen) of the town, under the stool name “Nana Benneh III”.
