Ghanahomepage, Ghanaweb is continuing our segment of exposing our members of the worldwide community, unrecognizable and at the peak of their careers, nice in character and are always patronizing at many events whenever needed. They say when you surround yourself with great people you would become one. Greatness comes from hereditary and those destined to be great learn from the greatest. There are great Ghanaians in New York with great charisma and one of them is Kwabena Manu aka Honorable Pancho, his father, the late Mr. J.Y. Manu of blessed memory was a great man. The profile is not about Honorable Pancho but his good friend, Joe Boafo.
I first met Joe with Hon. Pancho in New York and he exuded greatness and a wonderful character. He is a likeable gentleman AND well respected. He also works for UPS, the world's number one shipping company. Ghanaweb is putting a spotlight on this brother so the worldwide community would know about a great and wonderful Ghanaian in our community.
