“You are joining a Council that has proven so far to be very effective and excellent in its deliberations and outputs…it is my hope and expectation that you’ll also make sound contributions to the proceedings of the Council and thereby add value to its products and help enrich my presidency for the benefit of the Ghanaian people,” he stressed.

On his part, Ogyeahohuo Yaw Gyebi II, pledged to carry out his duties to the best of his ability.

“I will work with other members of the Council to ensure that the President is given the best counsel to enable him (President Akufo-Addo) achieve his vision and mandate,” he said.

The Ghana news Agency (GNA) was established on March 5, 1957, i.e. on the eve of Ghana's independence and charged with the "dissemination of truthful unbiased news". It was the first news agency to be established in Sub-Saharan Africa. GNA was part of a comprehensive communication policy that sought to harness the information arm of the state to build a viable, united and cohesive nation-state. GNA has therefore been operating in the unique role of mobilizing the citizens for nation building, economic and social development, national unity and integration.
