“Your decisive, historic win opportunity to strengthen Ghana-UK ties” – Akufo-Addo


President Nana Akufo-Addo has congratulated UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson for his re-election.

“Warm congratulations Boris Johnson on your decisive, historic win”, Mr Akufo-Addo tweeted, adding: “We have an opportunity, together, to renew and strengthen the relations between our two countries, focusing on enhancing trade and investment, and scaling up prosperity for our peoples”.

“The common democratic aspirations and values of our two nations provide us with a strong platform for going forward.

“The Ghanaian people and I wish you the very best of luck and lots of success in the future”, the President noted.

Mr Johnson returned to Downing Street with a big majority after the Conservatives swept aside Labour in its traditional heartlands.

The prime minister said it would give him a mandate to “get Brexit done” and take the UK out of the EU next month.

Jeremy Corbyn said Labour had a “very disappointing night” and he would not fight a future election.

The Tories got 364 MPs, Labour 203, the SNP 48, the Lib Dems 12, Plaid Cymru four, the Greens one, and the Brexit Party none.

That means the Conservatives will have their biggest majority at Westminster since Margaret Thatcher’s 1987 election victory.

Labour, which has lost seats across the North, Midlands and Wales in places which backed Brexit in 2016, is facing its worst defeat since 1935.
