New embassy symbolizes “partnership” between Accra and Paris – French ambassador

Speaking at an event to commission the construction of the embassy, Pujolas said he is hopeful that despite the differences between the two countries, the project will be delivered on time.

“It symbolizes the partnership between our two countries since it makes Ghanaian teams, French teams, both in France and in Ghana work very hard together despite all the differences-- cultural differences, linguistics differences and also maybe business or work environment which are all different. Despite all of that they work closely together and they will achieve this very project on time,” Pujolas said on Friday.

The current French Embassy shares the premises with the Flagstaff House, the seat of government.

President Nana Akufo-Addo expressed the government’s deep satisfaction at France’s decision to resettle their embassy.

He further assured them that the relocation exercise will be done without political difficulties.

Many Ghanaians have spoken about the security threats it poses to the country even before the construction of the building was completed.

Some said that the French intelligence satellite could interfere with that of government of Ghana.
