There is always a saying, that take a photo or you weren’t there, and this seems to be the philosophy that motivated some of the Ghana’s representatives at the UN General Assembly this week.
During President Akufo-Addo's address before the assembly, cameras caught a glimpse of the Gender Minister, Otiko Afisa Djaba and the Deputy Chief of Staff Abu Jinapor having their own merry fun time.
The two were seen taking selfies with their phones while the rest of the delegation, and the attendees in general at the assembly were focused on the President’s impressive speech.
