He is always available whenever the party bigwigs come for a visit in Germany.

Mr Adjei   is also well-connected within the higher ranks across the political establishment in Germany – Konrad Adenauer Foundation, the ruling Christian Democratic Union (CDU) as well as within the Bundestag, the German Parliament.

A brief information about this larger than life political figure:

Adjei attended a polytechnic in 1987 in Berlin, Germany. He took part in a course run by the German Chamber of Commerce and Industry (IHK), through a firm then called Bepla, now re-named Apla in Berlin. He also pursued a programme in Local Government administration and management at the Konrad Adenauer Foundation with whom he still maintains very strong relationship. Sammy also pursued community management training programme also in Germany.

He became a director of African Cultural Affairs at the International Delphic Council (IDC). The IDC is the highest authority for all matters regarding the Delphic Games of the modern era. Mr Adjei, by his activities, could be described as “Delphic Ambassador” of which Nelson Mandela was one.

Mr Adjei was also instrumental in arranging the Grand Finale show of the International Tourism Exchange (ITB), the world’s largest event in the tourism sector, which takes place in the German capital annually.
