President Akufo-Addo has eulogised the husband of the British Monarch, Prince Philip, who died on Friday aged 99.

According to the President, the Duke of Edinburgh impacted Ghana positively.

“Prince Philip’s life had a positive impact on us in Ghana,” the President wrote in a tribute Saturday.

He said: “Over seven hundred and fifty thousand (750,000) young Ghanaians have benefitted from the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme, the great initiative he established in 1956, sixty-five (65) years ago, to unearth talents amongst young people the world over.”

“It is now known in Ghana as the Head of State Award Scheme, and I had the honour, two days before his death, of cutting the sod for the construction of its own administrative office building, making Ghana one of the few countries in the world, and the second in Africa, to have such an office. His place in Ghanaian history is secure, and we appreciate very much his contact with us,” the President said.
