Days ago, we told you about the raging debate about the name of the Australian High Commissioner to Ghana, Gregory Andrews.
When he assumed office, he inherited a dog called Kofi and when he posted about the dog on his Facebook account, a number of Ghanaians took offense and urged him to change the name.
Now, that debate has moved from Facebook into the halls of academia itself.
The High Commissioner paid a working visit to the University of Ghana, Legon where he met the Vice Chancellor Professor Ebenezer Oduro Owusu and other senior authorities at the university.
Though they discussed collaboration between Australia and Ghana in the education and research sectors, another topic came up – the name of his dog.
Gregory said the academics agreed that he should change the name of the dog, so he asked them for help.
“Now the university is putting some of the best minds in Ghana together to work on suggestions,” he said in this Facebook post.
We may soon witness a dog’s name change and naming ceremony on the Facebook page.
