Ghana Commits to French

Ghana’s minister for education, Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh, underscored his country’s commitment to the promotion of French as a second official language during the signing in Paris of a linguistic pact between West African nation and the International Organization of the Francophonie (OIF) for improved technical support and capacity building for the teaching and learning of French in Ghana.

Explaining that Ghana was surrounded by French-speaking countries and that most Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) countries had French as their official language, Dr. Opoku stressed that strategically, it was in Ghana’s interests to pursue the teaching and learning of French to enable the country benefit more from the West African sub-region.
