The Founder and Leader of Team Blaze Foundation, a non-governmental organisation aimed at helping the less-privileged in society, Seth Adu-Mensah, is now the Vice-Chancellor of Global Youth and Student Commissioner of WODIF.
This position earns him the title “His Lordship High Chancellor Seth Adu-Mensah”. He will occupy the position until January 5, 2025.
This comes on the back of the receipt of appointment letter by the West Africa Commissioner.
“The World Diplomatic Federation (WODIF) writes with great pleasure to officially appoint you to join its top executive office of dignified representatives. This invitation is strictly based on one or more of the following accomplishments: your past high public office held, special international role played, missionary once headed, past experience as a top-key decision-maker [privately] or as a former high office holder in a corporate organisation,” portions of the appointment letter read.
While anticipating his acceptance of the appointment, the group expressed optimism that he would “incorporate your leadership position to the mainstream of our humanitarian services”.
“This invitation does not require you to relocate from your current place of residence. However, you will always be notified of the necessary arrangements in advance whenever your presence will be needed at any given location different from your permanent place of abode.
“As and when necessary, there may be conferences or meetings over Skype, zoom or any other secured convenient conference medium to facilitate distant communication during important discussions. The founder, patrons and governing council of ‘WODIF’ believe your skill, expertise, rich experience and in-depth knowledge acquired while serving in your own capacity as a Vice Chancellor (Youth & Students Commission) to bear on cogent international issues which may crop up from time to time,” the appointment letter added.
Speaking exclusively with Adu-Mensah on the position, he explained that the World Diplomatic Federation (WODIF) mandates its members to use diplomacy for negotiation, networking and lobbying to ensure that the respective countries they represent enjoy peace and prosperity.
“It is also for liberalisation, managing international relations, thus promoting and sustaining peace and security. WODIF engages in conferences, dialogues, festivals, honorary award ceremonies, trade integration and cooperation,” Mr Adu-Mensah stated.
He further pointed out that the world of today is saddled with a lot of challenges. To surmount such challenges, he stressed the need for all and sundry to use their respective abilities and intelligence to help alleviate the effects these challenges have on individual lives.
“We must understand that world leaders alone cannot solve problems facing the world. For this reason, the World Diplomatic Federation is a non-governmental organisation constituted to help in minimising, if not eliminating, crisis facing vulnerable individuals, communities, and countries struggling to survive,” he added.
He also disclosed that “WODIF brings together the noble, the creme de la creme and business moguls of high repute, philanthropists, technocrats, as well as traditional rulers who are expected to combine their expertise and resources to undertake projects and programmes that will impact lives.”
According to him, the organisation has platforms to bring together such great men and women to find practicable solutions to mitigate the world’s problems.
“The Federation believes in the globalisation and localisation of associations that support and connect members to the international community for opportunities across the globe. WODIF has initiated programmes, resources, and events that are meant to help our members well,” he added.
