Former President, John Agyekum Kufour has shared new photo on his Twitter handle which sees former Arsenal Coach Arsene Wenger paying a visit to him.
Both great men could be seen seated smiling for the camera.
Just recenlty, Liberian President, George Weah conferred Liberia’s highest distinctions upon legendary soccer manager Arsene Wenger, former Ghanaian President John Kofi Agyekum Kufour, and several other distinguished personalities for their remarkable services to the country and humanity at large, especially on the African continent.
President Weah conferred the highest National Honor, the “Collar of State-Most Venerable Order of the Pioneers,” upon former President Kufour.
President Weah said the former Ghanaian president was honored for his role played in restoring peace to Liberia.
It can be recalled that during the country’s turbulent history, Mr. Kuffour played a critical role in the peace process. As President and Chairman of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS), Kuffour oversaw Liberia’s peace efforts and coordinated with parties to the Liberian conflict, ending in the signing of the Accra Comprehensive Peace Accord, which laid the roadmap for the successful restoration of peace and stability in Liberia.
President Weah also said in a citation that in his 22 years at Arsenal, Sir Arsene Wenger’s accomplishments made him a legendary team manager and one of the most successful in the history of the English league.
“Sir Wenger proved his worth as a Professor, as he was dubbed, when he revolutionized the approach for scouting young talents all over the planet, particularly throughout Africa. With that approach, he recruited some of the finest African players the world will ever know, including the legendary World Best, His Excellency Dr. George Manneh Weah, President of the Republic of Liberia,” the citation said.
Below is the photo of Wenger’s visit to Kuffour in his residence:
