His Royal Majesty King Mohammed VI of Morocco has urged Africa students to unite.
In a letter addressed by the Revered King to the leaderships of the continent’s largest student group, All-Africa Students Union (AASU) and the Ghana Morocco Old Students Association (GHAMOSA), an association made up of Ghanaian graduates from various Moroccan institutions, the King after expressing his appreciation for the honorary title of Noble Change Ambassador Award, encouraged these two students/youth groups to continue promoting closer ties between Africa Students.
“I wish you success in your worthy endeavours to promote closer ties between African students, particularly between Moroccan and Ghanaian students” he stated his Royal letter.
His Majesty Mohammed VI was awarded a NOBEL CHANGE AMBASSADOR in the 2018 edition of the National Students’ Award, having been highly recommended by the largest continental students group, All – African Students Union (AASU) partner of the Ghana Morocco Old Students Association (GHAMOSA).
The National Students’ Awards is an award scheme organised by the National Students’ Alliance, a body corporate established by the leadership of all student groups in Ghana.
The scheme has honoured Educational Ambassadors like His Excellency Former President John Agyekum Kuffuor and His Excellency Former President Jerry John Rawlings.
In last year’s edition, His Royal Majesty Mohammed VI, King of Morocco was awarded as the NOBEL CHANGE AMBASSADOR for his immense contribution in educating African youths through his scholarship scheme.
The King through the Moroccan Agency for International Cooperation (AMCI) offers 100% scholarship to thousands of foreign students especially students from Africa. The aim of the scholarship is to strengthen the bond with international students.
Presenting the Royal Letter to these two leaders, Ambassador Mohammed Farahat, Morocco Ambassador to Ghana who has been the back bone behind the partnership between these two groups, congratulated them and affirmed the embassy’s commitment to continue supporting them in their endeavours to promote closer ties between African students, especially between Moroccan and Ghanaian students.
He added, “The Embassy of the Kingdom of Morocco avails itself of this opportunity to renew to the All-Africa Students Union and the Ghana Morocco Old Students Association the assurances of its highest consideration”
Reacting to the Royal letter from the Moroccan King, the two leaders, Mr. Peter Kodjie, Secretary General of the All – African Students Union and Mr. Peter Panyin Anaman, President of the Ghana Morocco Old Students Association expressed their outmost gratitude to His Royal Majesty for his heart-warming letter to them and thanked His Excellency Ambassador Mohammed Farahat for his support.
For these leaders and their members, it is a great honour for them to receive such letter from the Revered King. Both leaders admitted that they are highly motivated by the King’s kind gesture and pledged to do more to promote Africa Unity at their level as students and youth of the continent. They stated that ‘’the leadership of the His Royal Majesty is the kind of leadership the continent needs and we will do our best to give him our support whenever necessary’’. They added ‘’what Africa lacks is not resources but good leadership and that is what His Majesty represents.
