The President was also delighted to announce the appointment of Fuse ODG as the brand ambassador for Cocoa, who, according to him, has the responsibility of promoting the consumption of cocoa both in Ghana and across the world.
“One of the world’s biggest Afropop artiste. Our very own Fuse ODG in addition to his other duties as tourism ambassador has taken upon himself to promote the consumption of cocoa products not only in Ghana but across the world. I thank him for this patriotic gesture,” he said.
