Amb. Imane Ouaadil and Peter Panyin Anaman with the book on display
“Echoing the Voice of Africa,” a book authored by Peter Panyin Anaman, has been launched by the Global African Heritage Foundation under the auspices of the Moroccan Embassy in Ghana in honour of His Majesty King Mohammed VI.
The book, which is the first in a series, seeks to bring to the doorsteps of the African and non-African citizenries priceless treasures of wisdom and inspiring quotes of King Mohammed VI, King of Morocco. The hope is that through the pages of the book, African youth will come to embrace the African values of tolerance, service, patriotism, and Pan-Africanism.
Speaking with journalists at the launching ceremony in Accra, the Founder of Pan African Heritage, Prof. Kojo Yankah indicated that the book is to “inspire generations of Africans to value our African heritage, embrace the Africa we have, and build the better Africa we want through mindset transformation,” thus, making accessible to them the timeless inspiring wisdom of outstanding African leaders and statesmen.
“The Echoing the Voice of Africa, which is the first of its kind, has in it the best ever spoken words in African history. It sheds light on some of the powerful quotes of His Majesty King Mohammed VI, King of the Kingdom of Morocco and also touches on issues of African unity, African self-dependence African education, and a host of others,” he said.
Executive Director of the Global African Heritage Foundation, Peter Panyin Anaman, who doubles as the author, stated that the book seeks to honour some of the most inspiring African leaders.
“This book provides an insight into the philosophy of King Mohammed VI and indeed, his vision of Africa,” he said.
Ambassador Imane Ouaadil said the book is an invitation to African and non-African citizenries to foster interfaith harmony and promote the African values of tolerance and Pan-Africanism advocated by King Mohammed IV.
The event was attended by a group of African members of the Ghana Morocco Old Students Association among other dignitaries.
