Thompson highlighted the UK government’s commitment to supporting the Bono Region, particularly in education, through initiatives aimed at reintegrating out-of-school children and young adults back into training programs. 

She emphasized the longstanding and deep-rooted relationship between Ghana and the United Kingdom, dating back to the pre-colonial era, noting that today’s relations are based on mutual respect, shared values, and a recognition of Ghana’s importance and potential on the world stage.

“The UK’s work on development goes beyond what we think of traditionally as aid,” Thompson stated. “So here in the Bono Region, we have worked on health, assisting the Holy Family Hospital in Techiman with equipment and training.”

Thompson commended Osagyefo Oseadeeyo Agyemang Badu II for his efforts to improve the living standards of his people, acknowledging his role in nurturing Ghana’s democracy as the country faces elections this year. She expressed optimism about the partnership between the UK and Ghana, emphasizing the shared goal of realizing Ghana’s full potential.
