President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo will launch the global Pan African Heritage World Museum commemoration on Monday, September 21, through the virtual platform.
The Pan African Heritage World Museum is the creation of Mr Kojo Yankah, the Founder of African University College of Communications and the former Minister of State and Member of Parliament.
Mr Yankah explained that the key component of the heritage world was a museum, which coincided with the story of Africans from creation to the present day, adding, “it is time we tell our own story to guide and inspire our youth to be more proud and self-confident”.
The Museum will be located at Pomadze Hills, near Winneba Junction to be managed by an international Board of Trustees, supported by an Academic Council chosen from various parts of the Pan African world.
He said the project, which was to be partly funded through donations and grants, would also be open to private sector investment.
Mr Yankah said other personalities to grace the event include: Mrs Barbara Oteng-Gyasi, the Minister of Tourism, Culture and Creative Arts; Oba Lamidi Olayiwola Adeyemi III, Alaafin of Oyo: Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi Ojaja II, Ooni of life, Nigeria; Bishop Claude Alexender, Leader of the Park Church and R400 Movement and others.
He said other speakers would be scholars from the Academic Council and representatives of the organisation’s branches across the world.
There will also be solidarity messages from the African Union Commission, UNESCO and the Association of African Universities.
