The US government has sent its best wishes to Ghana as the country marks 65 years of independence.

On behalf of the US government, Antony J. Bliken, Secretary of State, in a press release issued today, Sunday, March 6, 2022, said ” I congratulate all Ghanaians home and abroad on the anniversary of Ghana’s independence.”

“We value the long-standing partnership between the United States and Ghana, which has advanced our mutual economic, security, public health, human rights, and democratic governance interests.”

The US says, a recent meeting between President Akufo-Addo and Vice President Harris in September 2021, and another with Vice President Dr. Mahammudu Bawumia in January is a reaffirmation of the strong bilateral friendship existing between the two countries.

“On this occasion, we reflect on our shared history and many people-to-people ties, and recommit ourselves to deepening our partnership. We also commend Ghana on its commitment to democracy in its leadership of the Economic Community of West African States”, the statement added.
