The Korean ambassador, Lyeo Woon-Ki, has lashed out at the transport ministry for being late to a workshop in Accra.
The Korean ambassador is reported to have waited for almost an hour at the workshop to get the inputs of stakeholders from the ministry for a major $1.5 million project for Accra's traffic congestion.
Unfortunately, a representative of the transport ministry arrived 43 minutes late.
“Ghanaians should learn to respect time because it is a valuable and precious resource,” Lyeo Woon-Ki fumed in his opening address.
The frustration of the ambassador was equally expressed by one Hyeokjo Kweon, the general manager of the consulting firm providing technical expertise for the master plan who fumed that "in Korea, if we schedule a programme to start at 9a.m, it starts at the same time”.
Meanwhile, the ministry of transport has officially apologised to the Korean ambassador for the lateness.
