GHANA’S DELEGATION TO THE 26TH COMMONWEALTH HEADS OF GOVERNMENT MEETING (CHOGM) 2022 HELD IN KIGALI, RWANDA

Ghana’s delegation led by H.E. President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, participated in the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting which took place from 20th to 25th June 2022, in Kigali, Rwanda.  The Ghana High Commission in Nairobi also participated in the event.

  1. The Commonwealth is a voluntary association of 56 independent and equal countries. It is home to about 2.5 billion people, and includes both advanced economies and developing countries. Commonwealth countries together with their governments have shared and common goals towards development, democracy and peace. The last countries to join the Commonwealth are Gabon and Togo which was announced during the CHOGM 2022 in Rwanda.
  2. This year, Commonwealth leaders from across Africa, Asia, the Caribbean, the Pacific and Europe travelled to Rwanda in person for the first time since the COVID-19 pandemic to reaffirm their common values and policies to improve the lives of all their citizens. The theme for CHOGM 2022 was ‘Delivering a Common Future: Connecting, Innovating, Transforming.’ This theme highlights how the 54 member countries in the Commonwealth family are ‘innovating, connecting and transforming’ to help achieve some of its biggest goals, like protecting natural resources and boosting trade. It was chosen because Commonwealth countries are connected by deep-rooted networks of friendship and goodwill.
  3. Dignitaries who attended the CHOGM included H.E. Paul Kagame, President of the Republic of Rwanda and host of CHOGM 2022, His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales (who represented Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II as the Head of the Commonwealth), Rt. Hon. Patricia Scotland QC, Commonwealth Secretary-General, Rt. Hon. Boris Johnson, Prime Minister of London among others.
