"We need the support of all Ghanaians to make this event a success and showcase our rich culture and talent to the world," he said. The event promises to be a spectacular showcase of Ghanaian talent, culture, and cuisine during the Paris 2024 Olympics and Paralympics, exposing Ghana to a global audience of over 4000 people and we must support this initiative."

The 2024 Olympics and Paralympics games, scheduled for August 28 to September 8, 2024, in Paris, France, will be a historic milestone, marking the first time Paris hosts the Paralympics and the second time France hosts the Paralympic Games.
