Ex-President Assumes WFP Post
Former President left Accra Tuesday night for Belligio, Italy, where he is to be inaugurated into office as Ambassador against Hunger of the World Food Programme (WFP) of the United Nations.
WFP Executive Director, Josette Sheeran, on behalf of the UN Secretary-General, Ban Ki-Moon, announced the appointment last February, and next Thursday's ceremony is to officially initiate former President Kufuor into office.
The inauguration is planned to coincide with WFP's major strategic conference on School Feeding under the theme: 'Feed Minds and Changes' organized with the World bank and other multilateral organizations.
From Belligio, former President Kufuor will go to Oxford University, UK, to chair a strategic frame-work policy meeting and workshop as President of Alliance for Africa Foundation.
He will be away for 10 days.
