The President of the Republic of Ghana, His Excellency Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has used his official Instagram page to extend his deepest condolences to the Royal Family of Great Britain. This happened after the official announcement of the demise of Her Royal Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II. Reliable sources indicate that the Queen passed on today, Thursday, 8th September 2022.
President Akufo-Addo also extended his condolences to the new British monarch, King Charles III, the Royal Family, the Prime Minister, and the Government and people of Great Britain. President Akufo-Addo used his platform to inform Ghanaians about the benefits Ghana had from Queen Elizabeth II when she visited Ghana some years back. As a result of this, President Akufo-Addo has directed that all official flags in the nation fly at half-mast for seven (7) days, as from tomorrow, Friday, 9th September.
This is what he posted on his official Instagram page:
"On behalf of the Government and people of Ghana, I extend deepest condolences to the new British monarch, King Charles III, the Royal Family, the Prime Minister, and the Government and people of Great Britain on the death, today, of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, late Queen of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and Head of the Commonwealth of Nations.
The Ghanaian people have very fond memories of the two visits she made to Ghana during her reign, and, on both occasions, we remember the friendliness, elegance, style, and sheer joy she brought to the performance of her duties.
As Head of the Commonwealth of Nations, she superintended 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 organization sturdy and true to its positive beliefs. 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 honor of her memory, I have directed that all official flags in the nation fly at half-mast for seven (7) days, as from tomorrow, Friday, 9th September.
May God bless her soul and give her peaceful rest in His Bosom until the Last Day of the Resurrection when we shall all meet again. Amen".
Some Ghanaians after coming across this sad news extended their deepest condolences to the Royal Family of England. Others said that President Akufo-Addo's condolence message is unnecessary. He should fix the country and stop extending condolences to leaders in other countries.
