Akufo-Addo congrats Pres-Elect Maada Bio
On behalf of the people and Government of Ghana, I congratulate warmly His Excellency Julius Maada Bio on his re-election as President of the Republic of Sierra Leone in the presidential election of Saturday, 24th June 2023.
The Sierra Leonean people are to before their peaceful and orderly conduct in the elections, which has strengthened the frontiers of multiparty democracy in Sierra Leone.
I commend his closest challenger, Dr. Samura Kamara, and the All Peoples Congress, for a well-fought electioneering campaign. It is the hope of all well-meaning democrats in and out of West Africa that their reaction to the results will serve to deepen the attachment of the Sierra Leonean people to democracy. The world expects this of them.
I look forward to continuing to work with President Maada Bio in his second term of office, just as we did in his first, so we can continue to build on the strong ties of friendship and co-operation which exists between our two countries, and which are based on the shared agenda of development, prosperity and adherence to the tenets of good governance and the rule of law.
Warm congratulations, once again, to President Julius Maada Bio, and to the people of Sierra Leone. Best wishes for his and the country’s success.
There is a good reason why you should support the African Editors. Not everyone can afford to pay for news right now. That is why we keep our journalism open for everyone to read, including in Ghana. If this is you, please continue to read for free. But if you are able to, then there are three good reasons to support us today.
1. Our quality, journalism is a scrutinising force at a time when the rich and powerful are getting away with more and more.
2. We are independent and have no billionaire owner pulling the strings, so your money directly powers our reporting.
3. It doesn’t cost much, and takes less time than it took to read this message.
