The European Union in Ghana has come on board as one of the partners for the 2023 Heritage Caravan being organized by Citi FM and Citi TV.
H.E Irchad Razaaly, the EU Ambassador to Ghana was on the Citi Breakfast Show on Monday to explain the Union’s reasons for supporting the Caravan.
For him, the Caravan resonates with the European Union’s recognition of culture and heritage.
“Last year, we were challenged to support this initiative. Last, we came a bit late, so we supported the Back to your Village Food Bazaar and it was incredible. So that is why we are supporting the Heritage Caravan and giving a free ticket.”
One lucky listener, Emmanuel Okaijah won himself a complimentary seat for this year’s Heritage Caravan after he successfully answered a question posed by the Ambassador.
Last year, the EU Ghana Office sponsored the Back to Your Village Food Bazaar organized by Citi TV/ Citi FM as part of the Heritage Month celebration in March.
