(Ing. Dr. Bright Atsu Sogbey)

Africa has come by far. The first continent to have witnessed global civilization, first in the history of human race.

The Spirit of Pan-Africanism, Africa Unity, and Scientific Renaissance, must be the Hallmark, if indeed, we want an accelerated Industrial Growth to catapult Africa to the level of her peers, among the global economic community.

I therefore, wish all Fellows of the Africa Development Council – ADC, a high spirited welcome to the Council.

Yes, we can. Together We Stand, and Divided We Fall.

Thank you all.
