Making the presentation on behalf of Ghana at the African Union Commission, the National Coordinator of Ghana Boundary Commission, Major General Emmanuel Kotia, stated that Ghana had now fulfilled its obligation by depositing the instrument of the ratified Convention signed by the President of the Republic of Ghana, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, on 25 April 2023.

The instrument was received by the Director and legal Counsel of the African Union Commission, Dr. Guy Fleury-Ntawari, in the presence of officials of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Ghana Embassy in Ethiopia.
