Sell Ghana to investors – First Lady

A group of contestants for the 2017 Exquisite Face of Universe pageant on Thursday, 13 September 2017 paid a courtesy call on the First Lady Mrs Rebecca Akufo-Addo at her Ridge office as part of their activities for this year’s pageant.

This group of ladies, numbering 35, will be participating in the final of this year’s pageant organised by First Loyal Event Limited on 16th September at the National Theatre under the theme: “Eat Ghana, Feel Ghana, Wear Ghana, Love Ghana.”

Addressing the queens, Mrs Akufo-Addo urged them to take the opportunity to learn more about Ghana and its people while here, and carry with them, their positive experiences when they return and sell Ghana to their various countries to help attract investors into the country.

She also commended organisers for the goals for their pageant which seeks to create advocacy roles for the queens to help promote and achieve sustainable development goals of the United Nations.

Mrs Akufo-Addo further encouraged the ladies to work hard and be positive role models for the coming generation as well as work to improve the lives of women and children. She wished all the ladies well, noting that irrespective of who is crowned, all of them are winners therefore all should contribute in their various ways to ensure goals for the pageant are achieved.
