Following the passing of Queen Elizabeth II, President Akufo-Addo has sent the Royal Family his sincere condolences.
The Queen was praised by the President for doing a heroic job of building the Commonwealth of Nations into a powerful organization in a Facebook post intended to express sympathy to the Royal Family and the people of Great Britain.
“As Head of the Commonwealth of Nations, she superintended over the dramatic transformation of the Union, and steered it to pay greater attention to our shared values and better governance. She was the rock that kept the organisation sturdy and true to its positive beliefs.”
President said he was saddened by the queen’s departure.
“We shall miss her inspiring presence, her calm, her steadiness, and, above all, her great love and belief in the higher purpose of the Commonwealth of Nations, and in its capacity to be a force for good in our world. She was a cherished and revered monarch of the British people, the longest-serving in their history, who will be sorely missed. We are saddened by her departure.”
In honour of the late Queen’s memory, the President has directed that all official flags in Ghana fly at half-mast for seven (7) days, as from tomorrow, Friday, 9th September.
