President Akufo-Addo expresses his condolences to the royal family on Queen Elizabeth's death.

Following the death of Queen Elizabeth II, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo expressed his sympathies to King Charles, the devastated royal family, and the entire United Kingdom.

President Akufo-Addo eulogized the monarch in a series of tweets, citing the "indelible mark" she left behind.

"The Ghanaian people have very happy recollections of her two visits to Ghana during her reign, and on both instances, we remember the warmth, elegance, style, and sheer delight she brought to the discharge of her duties," he says.

President Akufo-Addo also mentioned the critical role she played in changing the Commonwealth of Nations and steering it toward a focus on "our common values and improved governance."

He was, however, saddened by her inspiring presence, composure, and firmness, and, above all, her tremendous love and belief in the Commonwealth of Nations' ultimate purpose and capacity to be a force for good, all of which would be missed.

Queen Elizabeth died peacefully on September 8, 2022, at the age of 96.

She was the longest-reigning monarch, ruling for seven decades.

Meanwhile, her eldest son, Prince Charles, will reign as King Charles the III in her place.
