The New Africa Foundation, the organizing body behind the event, expressed deep regret and shock over the sudden cancellation.
Despite securing government approval in November 2023 and with all preparations in place, the Foundation received the disheartening news of the event's cancellation just hours before its scheduled commencement.
The cancellation affected not only the local attendees, who came from various parts of Ghana but also the numerous international dignitaries and special guests who had travelled to Accra to participate in this historic gathering.
The New Africa Foundation, the primary organizer, issued an official apology to the public and attendees for any inconvenience caused by this unforeseen development. They emphasized that the situation leading to the cancellation was beyond their control.
As of now, details surrounding the abrupt cancellation remain sparse, and the Foundation has promised to provide more information on the matter as it becomes available.
The cancellation of ‘The Convention' marks a disappointing start to what may have been anticipated to be a significant Pan-African event, which some say was to be the unveiling of the New Force as a political party in Ghana.
