By on

The Caribbean country of Guyana has conferred its highest national award on President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.

The President of the Co-operative Republic of Guyana, Mr David Arthur Granger, conferred the Order of Excellence of Guyana on President Akufo-Addo at a State luncheon held in his honour in Georgetown, Guyana, yesterday.

Established in 1970 under the Constitution of the Orders of Guyana, the Order of Excellence of Guyana is limited to only 25 living citizens of Guyana.



Reading the citation accompanying the honour after its conferment, Mr Granger stated that his country was pleased to honour President Akufo-Addo “for his dedication and commitment to the Commonwealth, the African Union, ECOWAS and for his unflinching support for the rights of developing states”.


A statement from the Office of the President said President Granger stated that “President Akufo-Addo is recognised for his invaluable exertions in promoting economic security and stability on the continent of Africa, his steadfast dedication to regionalism and tireless efforts to promote the interests of developing states”.

Developing countries, the Guyanese President added, looked to President Akufo-Addo’s continued leadership and stewardship in the protection of their gains and in securing their future.

“I congratulate President Akufo-Addo on his investiture and thank him for his stewardship in his own country, his leadership in the developing world and particularly in the interest of the small nations of Africa, Asia and the Caribbean,” he added.


Great Rebellion

Prior to holding bilateral discussions with his Guyanese counterpart, President Akufo-Addo had laid a wreath at the 1763 Monument.

The 1763 Monument structure was built to commemorate the 1763 rebellion, also known as the “Great Rebellion”, that occurred on plantation Magdelenenburg in Berbice, Region 6.

The plantation was located on the Upper Canje River and was owned by one Madam Vernesobre.
