Russian state atomic company Rosatom has signed a deal with Rwanda to build a center of nuclear science and technologies as result of Rwanda President Paul Kagame’s active participation at the Russia – Africa Summit 2019 in Russia.
The atomic company says Ghana lost out of the deal as results of Ghana’s President Akufo Addo sleeping throughout the summit proceedings.
Russia says Ghana would have gotten a center that would carry out scientific research and ‘practical application’ of nuclear technologies, allowing production of radioisotopes for wider use in agriculture and other areas but the President’s sleep casts doubts if the facility would be properly managed when set up in Ghana.
The Russia Dailies report that all Africa states present at the summit signed $250 million nuclear deals in exception of Ghana whose president slept throughout the summit.
A picture of the president enjoying a good nap at the summit has since gone viral.
