Guyana has honoured President Akufo-Addo with its highest award, the Order of Excellence of Guyana.
This took place at a state luncheon held in his honour on Tuesday, June 11, 2019, in Georgetown, Guyana.
Established in 1970 under the Constitution of the Orders of Guyana, the Order of Excellence of Guyana is limited to only 25 living citizens of Guyana.
The president of the Co-operative Republic of Guyana, His Excellency David Arthur Granger, reading the citation after the conferment of the honour, said his country was pleased to honour President Akufo-Addo “for his dedication and commitment to the Commonwealth, the African Union, ECOWAS, and for his unflinching support for the rights of developing states.”
According to a report by presidency.gov.gh, he added that President Akufo-Addo is recognised for his invaluable exertions in promoting economic security and stability on the continent of Africa, his steadfast dedication to regionalism, and tireless efforts to promote the interests of developing states.
YEN.com.gh understands that prior to holding bilateral discussions with his Guyanese counterpart, President Akufo-Addo laid a wreath at the 1763 Monument.
The 1763 Monument structure was built to commemorate the 1763 rebellion, also known as the “Great Rebellion”, that occurred on plantation Magdelenenburg in Berbice, Region 6. The plantation was located on the Upper Canje River, and was owned by one Madam Vernesobre.
