Two Ghanaian and Ghanaian-athletes were among this year’s Ghana Canada Association of British Columbia (GCABC)’s Honour Roll Call. Gershon Koffie, a player for the Vancouver White Caps Soccer Club, Ruky Abdulai, a Ghanaian-Canadian athlete, who now runs for Canada.
Also honoured were George Amoako, a police officer of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, and several local Ghanaian-owned small business enterprises, including the African Superstore, Anim Hair, Gigi’s Supermarket, Taste of Africa, and Platinum Auto.
The honorees were given certificates of appreciation. The citations on the certificates read: “The Ghana Canada Association of British Columbia Certificate of Recognition is hereby granted to you for outstanding service, dedication and lasting contribution to the Ghanaian community.”
Presenting the certificates at a sold-out party to mark the 57th Independence Anniversary of the Republic of Ghana at the Metro Hall here, GCABC President, Dr. Charles Quist-Adade thanked the recipients for bringing honour to the community, Ghana, and Canada. He said their feats and contributions would serve as shining examples to all Ghanaian, especially, the youth.
