German has revealed it will support the launch of a German-West African Centre for Global Health and Pandemic Prevention in Accra, capital of Ghana.
German ambassador to Ghana, Christoph Retzlaff, disclosed this in a tweet on Thursday, April 16.
Retzlaff said the Ghanaian centre is one of eighth others worldwide.
He, however, did not mention the locations of the seven others.
His tweet reads: “Excellent news: Germany will support launch of a new “German-West African Center for Global Health and Pandemic Prevention”.
“It will be located in Ghana and be part of 8 new centers worldwide to fight global challenges #sciencediplomacy #weareinthistogether.”
The development comes just when the dust is yet to settle on Twitter’s choice of Ghana over Nigeria for its African headquarters.
The decision from the company sparked debates with many blaming governmental policies and insecurity for the development.
Jack Dorsey, Twitter CEO, said the company’s choice of Ghana was based on the country’s history of being a “champion of democracy” and “a supporter of free speech, online freedom and the open internet”.
