On April 8, 1938, Kofi Annan was born in Kumasi, Gold Coast (now Ghana). Efua Atta, his twin sister, died in 1991.

Annan attended Mfantsipim, an all-boys Methodist boarding school in Cape Coast built in the 1870s, from 1954 to 1957. “Suffering everywhere, troubles people everywhere,” Annan claimed he learned in school.
The Gold Coast obtained independence from the United Kingdom in 1957, the year Annan graduated from Mfantsipim, and began using the name “Ghana.”

Annan enrolled at the Kumasi College of Science and Technology, which is now the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology of Ghana, to study economics in 1958. He was awarded a Ford Foundation scholarship to finish his undergraduate studies in economics at Macalester College in St. Paul, Minnesota.

Boutros Boutros-Ghali, the Secretary-General of the United Nations, stood unopposed for a second term in 1996. Despite receiving 14 of the Security Council’s 15 votes, the United States vetoed him.

Boutros-Ghali suspended his candidacy after four deadlocked Security Council meetings, becoming the first Secretary-General to be denied a second term. Annan was the front-runner to succeed him in the first round, defeating Amara Essy by one vote. France, on the other hand, vetoed Annan four times before abstaining. On December 13, 1996, the United Nations Security Council recommended Annan.

He began his first term as Secretary-General on January 1, 1997, after being confirmed by the General Assembly four days later.

Annan died on August 18, 2018, at the age of 80, in Bern, Switzerland, after a “brief illness,” according to his family.
