Kofi Annan's family pay their respects in Kumasi family home

Late former United Nations Secretary General Kofi Annan championed issues at the UN including promotion of gender equality and empowerment of women which are aligned with the priorities of UN members, including T&T, at the multilateral level.

Annan served at the helm of the United Nations during a complicated period and did a great deal to achieve the goals and tasks of the organization, enhancing its central role in global affairs, Putin said.

Mr Kufuor noted that self-confidence among black people can be beneficial, as they seek to compete with their foreign counterparts in their various fields of endeavour. "The memory of Kofi Annan will remain in the hearts of Russians forever", he said. "He combined knowledge and good attitude and that propelled him to greater heights, we can all learn from his confidence".
