The Founder and CEO of GUBA, Dentaa Amoateng MBE has been honoured with the Exemplary Leadership in Diaspora Mobilisation Award at the Ghana Homecoming Summit Committee which came off on Saturday, July 8, 2017.
The awards which took place at the Kempinski Hotel come as an acknowledgement of Industries and individuals aiding in the provision of services and support to Ghanaians in the diaspora.
Mrs Amoateng MBE in her acceptance, stressed on the need for unity among Ghanaians.
“We need to build trust and eschew the negative tendencies which work against our interests and progress as a people. We see businesses that start well and just when everyone is hailing the success story they allow pettiness and trivial issues to destroy an otherwise successful business.
“We can work together to build very successful businesses here in Ghana, here in Africa. So let us seize the moment and build a better future for ourselves and the next generation,” she said.
In attendance was the President and First Lady, Nana Akufo-Addo and Rebecca Akufo-Addo, Vice President and Second Lady Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia and Samira Bawumia, amongst various Ghanaian dignitaries. Presenting the award was the Minister of Gender, Children and Social Protection, Otiko Afisah Djaba.
The award was part of the Ghana Homecoming Summit Committee’s Excellence in Ghana Diaspora Mobilisation Award series.
