US Vice President vindicates Akuffo-Addo over the 2020 elections victory.

U.S.-Ghana's official bilateral relationship began in 1957, but there are longer-standing ties between the two nations. The African diaspora in the United States is significant, and our nation is stronger for it. The United States and Ghana are working together to prepare for the next pandemics. The United States has donated more than 1.2 million doses of the Moderna vaccine to Ghana. American companies continue to ramp up in Ghana, understanding the significance of the work they do there to America's economy.

Earlier, President Akufo-Addo met the Mayor of Houston, Sylvester Turner and other members of the business community in Houston, where he said Ghana will continue to protect legitimate investments, and preserve the atmosphere of peace, stability and security that has been an important contributor to the increasing presence of investors in Ghana.

Following this meeting, he also met with the Vice President of the United States, where they talked about various issues.

The President of the Republic, Nana Addo Danquah Akuffo-Addo has received a congratulatory message from the White House over his victory in the 2020 general election. He was applauded by Vice President Kamala Harris when he paid an official visit to the United States Presidency.

US Vice President Kamala Harris has asserted that Ghanaians voted for President Akuffo-Addo in a free and fair election. She indicated that the United States monitored the election process and was satisfied with the conduct and outcome. The opposition National Democratic Congress accused the Electoral Commission of rigging the poll in favour of the New Patriotic Party (NPP). The case ended in the Supreme Court where the Chief Justice dismissed it.

She said, "We, the 2 nations share a commitment to democracy. Last year, the people in December voted for you in a free and fair election that demonstrated your nation's commitment to democratic principles and institutions. We share a view that all people must have a voice in their future."

President Akuffo-Addo stressed on the strong relationship between the two nations and Ghana's commitment to deepening democracy. The President also said on Thursday that Ghana is taking steps to gain grounds after the negative impact of the deadly coronavirus pandemic.
