nana-addo-1-900x515The British Prime Minister, Theresa May has sent a congratulatory message to Ghanaian President-elect Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.

In the message, the British PM indicated she recognised that it was a “hard-fought campaign and that the margin of victory was impressive.”

The message which was conveyed through a letter dated December 13, 2016 stated: “Our two countries share a strong and long-standing relationship, and one which I value deeply. I believe that the period ahead offers us a great opportunity to do more together.”

“I look forward to continuing our excellent co-operation on defence, drugs, crime and national security, and to working together on challenges such as tackling corruption”.

Adding the Prime Minister wrote, “Alongside our ongoing support to Ghana in areas such as governance, poverty reduction, education and health, I hope that we can look to deepen our economic co-operation.”

“I wish you and the people of Ghana every success. I look forward to meeting you when you make a visit to London,” it added.

Nana Addo won last week’s Presidential Elections convincingly by a 53 per cent margin as against incumbent President John Mahama’s 44 percent, a first time a President has failed to win re-election in Ghana.

Already, a number of World leaders including the French President, Francois Holande, former United Nations Secretary General, Mr Kofi Annan and the Special Representative of the Secretary-General and Head of the United Nations Office for West Africa and the Sahel, Dr Mohammed Ibn Chambas, have sent congratulatory messages to Nana Addo.
