I campaigned for Kofi Annan to be UN S-G; fond memories from Victor Gbeho
Veteran diplomat and statesman, Victor Gbeho has shared some of the fondest he shared with the late Kofi Annan.
The former ambassador of Ghana to the United Nations revealed that in his time of serving Ghana at that level, Kofi Annan was also a staff at the United Nations so the two of them worked closely together.
Speaking to Joy News’ Kojo Yankson, ahead of the burial of the former UN boss, Mr Gbeho recounted how he helped his friend in his bid to achieve that feat of becoming Secretary General.
“When he talked to the then President of Ghana, Flt Lt Jerry John Rawlings about becoming the Secretary-General and the President agreed, he was directed to come and see me about handling his campaign…” he stated.
