Commonwealth Day: Togo joins the organization in its celebration

Togo is joining Commonwealth Nations in the celebration of a special day this Monday 13 March, 2023. The occasion will be marked by observances, speeches, exhibitions and cultural events across the 56 Commonwealth member countries.

It has been announced that the theme for Commonwealth Day 2023 is ‘Forging a sustainable and peaceful common future’.

As a new member of the organization, Togo, through a message from the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Robert Dussey, expressed its joy to join the other members in this celebration today.

Commonwealth Day aims to unite 2.5 billion Commonwealth citizens in celebration of their shared values and principles, and in pursuit of a common future, centred on sustainability and peace.

This will be the first Commonwealth Day presided over by His Majesty King Charles III as King and Head of the Commonwealth. The day will also mark the tenth anniversary of the signing of the Commonwealth Charter, which outlines the values and principles that unify the 56 Commonwealth countries, representing one-third of humanity.

Founded since 1931, Commonwealth welcomed Togo in June 2022 after the country’s application was approved by Heads of Government at the 2022 Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting held in Kigali, Rwanda.

La liste de tous ces martyrs, assassinés d´une façon ou d´une autre, est longue. Les nombreuses tentatives depuis le début des années ´90 pour humaniser le pouvoir d´état et le rendre aux Togolais, n´ont pas pu résister à la terreur militaire, seule légitimité de la dictature du père en fils.
