2016年度 遡上プログラム NORSAAC(ガーナ）派遣
Currently, I am serving my country, Ghana, in one the highest decision making body for the country- The Economic Management Team (EMT)- as the Technical Economic Advisor to the Vice President of the Republic of Ghana. This role among other things requires carrying out research, following up on resolutions of the EMT, setting up venue for the weekly meetings of the EMT and performing any such analytical and policy related task as may be assigned by the Vice President. The EMT is the socio-economic policy incubator for the country as we work with various ministries, agencies and departments to formulate policy as well as monitor the delivery of these policies under the Chairmanship of the Vice President of the Republic of Ghana.
It has been a life-changing and impactful experience.

Whenever a task that requires research and or analytical skills and experience is assigned to me, I urgency to remember the experience from G.ecbo is high. Aside this, leadership and teamwork are crucial part of my current role as a public servant and I always draw from the lessons at G.ecbo.
For those graduating, never graduate unless you have developed a sense of independence and the determination to confront challenges. Because, you will have to take decision that affect a country or a group of people and you will also be entrusted with leadership in one way or another. Independence does not mean not being a team player but it means being able to do a personal level analysis of an issue to take an informed decision. I will further advise those graduating to learn from the experiences of both the classrooms and the field. The blend of theories and the practices will make you become better global citizens contributing to the development of humanity.
