President John Dramani Mahama on Friday delivered the honorary keynote address to open the Oxford Africa Conference 2015 at the Oxford Union.

The conference was on the theme “A Continent on the Move: People, Politics and Business Across Borders.” He among other things urged Africans to use social media to trumpet the continents story.

“The world is literally at our finger tips. In 140 typographic characters, we can share even the most mundane news of our lives with complete strangers in faraway places.

With a single hashtag we can appeal to the humanity of our brothers and sisters across the globe and ask for help with a deadly epidemic or with the return on kidnapped school girls,” President Mahama added.
