Valentina Mintah, a Ghanaian technology executive, has been elected as an executive member of the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) historically.
A report sighted by Briefly.co.za on Graphic.com.gh confirms that this is the first time a black female is taking the highly-coveted role since its inception 100 years ago.
The seven-member Executive Board was announced at the 2020 meeting of the ICC World Council and becomes the most diverse board in its history.
Valentina Mintah, the high-achieving Ghanaian lady is the only African on the team as she is serving along with six colleagues who hail from Qatar, Italy, Japan, China, Indonesia and Spain.
Mrs Valentina Mintah would be responsible for developing and implementing ICC’s strategy, policy and programme of action, and for overseeing the financial affairs of the organisation.
She is the founder and former Chief Executive of West Blue Consulting, an ICT organisation, and was a Senior Solutions Specialist at Crown Agents in the UK.
Valentina Mintah is also a founding member of the African Performance Institute, an organisation that promotes the advancement of e-commerce and e-government in Africa.
Briefly.co.za also shared another interesting report that popular Ghanaian comedian Clemento Suarez had released another breathtaking, interesting and totally hilarious side of his numerous talents as he spoke exactly like Ghana's former President Jerry John Rawlings.
Suarez unveiled this amazing skill in a radio interview at OkayFM with popular Ghanaian media personality Abeiku Santana.
The Ghanaian comedian did well to respond to very sensitive questions that Abeiku Santana asked him as though he were the former president.
