Ghana: President Mahama Congratulates Obama

The President of the Republic of Ghana, His Excellency John Dramani Mahama, has, on behalf of government and the people of Ghana, congratulated the President of the United States of America, Barrack Obama, on his re-election.

In a press release signed by the President, he said: "I have received with great joy the news of your re-election as the 44th President of the United States of America."

According to him, President Obama's resounding victory in the closely fought presidential elections on Tuesday, November 6, 2012, is a strong testimony of the unshakable confidence reposed by the American people in him and the Democratic Party to lead the US in the years ahead.

He added that President Obama's re-election also means the confidence reposed in him by Americans to continue to strengthen America's economy, maintain its strong political institutions, protect its borders, and give hope to the millions of people around the world who cherish the values of freedom, unfettered economic growth, and the pursuit of their ideals of a better life.

He ended: "I look forward to continuing to work with you and your government, to strengthen and deepen the excellent partnership between Ghana and the United States of America over the next four years, for the realisation of fruitful programmes that will inure to our mutual benefit. Accept, Excellency, the assurances of my highest consideration."
