In all 22 men and women have been appointed.

The 22 who have received their letters of credence according to the President, have been carefully chosen to become “our Ambassadors and High Commissioners. They have distinguished themselves in their various fields of endeavour – politics, medicine, law, academia, chieftaincy, military, business, social work – and in the public service of our country. They are eminently fit to represent Ghana in their respective places of accreditation, which have expressed satisfaction at their appointments…I congratulate each one of you warmly on your well-deserved appointment”.


The Ambassadors and High Commissioners have three roles to play: diplomatic, ceremonial and administrative. Apart from that, they are also to preserve and promote the image of the country.

“You represent a country that, as a result of the commendable conduct of the Ghanaian people, is regarded as one of the most stable on the continent, which is a functioning democracy, governed by the rule of law, and respect for individual liberties, human rights and the principles of democratic accountability. We are regarded as a beacon of democracy in Africa, and, recently, in April, according to the reputable RMB Global Markets Research, the 4th best place to invest and do business in on the African continent. You are the most visible symbol of our country out there, and in all your actions you must guard jealously our country’s image. I am confident this is a charge you will uphold” the President.
