Barfuor Adjei-Barwuah, who was a special guest of honor, for his role in making Overland-Tandberg’s plan to operate in Ghana possible. “A few months ago, the Ambassador met with us and and sold Ghana to us and encouraged our company to set up operations in Ghana. We have worked at a neck breaking speed to make this possible in just about three months. And I’m happy to say that we have acquired an office space in Ghana and ready to start operations soon.”
