The UN General Assembly
The UN General Assembly (UNGA) is the main deliberative, policymaking and representative organ of the UN where Presidents and prime ministers converge to deliberate on issues bordering on peace and security among others.

The general debate for this year’s session started on Tuesday, September 24 with the team; “Galvanizing multilateral efforts for poverty eradication, quality education, climate action, and inclusion”.

During the debate, leaders or country representatives are allotted 15 minutes to address the Assembly, but they are notorious for going overtime.

For Wednesday, September 25, a total of thirty-eight (38) countries including Ghana, will take turns to address the assembly in morning and afternoon sessions.

Some of the countries built to speak today include Ukraine, Romania, Iraq, Eswatini, Liberia, Iran, Lebanon, Republic of Palau, Georgia, Central African Republic, Colombia, Seychelles, Mauritania, Estonia, Guinea, Zambia, Chad, Honduras, Australia, Fiji.

Others are Ecuador, Guatemala, Kenya, Namibia, Panama, Togo, Costa Rica, Libya, Ghana, Lithuania, Ireland, Mali, Kiribati, Zimbabwe, Kuwait, Armenia, Czech Republic, Andorra.

While these protests were ongoing, a section of Ghanaians in the USA also gathered to cheer President Akufo-Addo on for the good works he has done.

Shouting the praises of the President, they said “Special prosecutor cleared, Nursing Training Allowances cleared, National ID, 1 District 1 Factory, 1 Village 1 Dam cleared, Fight against Galamsey cleared”
