On Wednesday, the United States Ambassador to Ghana, Stephanie Sullivan while thanking all those who have put their shoulders to the wheel for the Security Governance Initiative (SGI) Steering Committee to chalk a lot of success, also quoted an Akan proverb.
She encouraged members not to get weary because “Woforo dua pa a, na yepia wo” to wit, it is when you climb a good tree that we push you.
