Ghana election: Obasanjo congratulates Akufo-Addo
Former President Olusegun Obasanjo, yesterday, congratulated the president-elect of Ghana, Nana Akufo-Addo, describing his victory as a testimony of his performance in office.
Obasanjo stated this in his congratulatory letter to Akufo-Addo, the government and people of Ghana on the successful conduct of the Ghanaian general election held on Monday, December 7, which was made available to newsmen by his Media Aide, Kehinde Akinyemi.
The former President charged Akufo-Addo to remain as enthusiastic, energetic, focused and committed as he had been in the last four years in serving the people of Ghana and indeed the rest of Africa for the next four years again. He also urged him to be magnanimous in victory, unite the nation and bring all hands on deck for the growth, development and progress of Ghana.
Obasanjo noted that having been re-elected at a crucial time when the world was emerging from the socio-economic devastation of the COVID-19 pandemic, he needed to, “to take leadership and explore all available means both in Ghana and in the rest of Africa to secure safe, effective, available and affordable COVID-19 vaccines for all Ghanaians and their African brothers and sisters.” He, however, urged him not to lose sight of his determination to have a “Ghana beyond aid” in doing so.
