Please accept my sincere congratulations on your election as President of the Republic of Ghana.
The orderly conduct of the elections and the peaceful transfer of power have once again demÃ‚Âonstrated the exemplary stability of Ghanaian democracy, of which your country’s people can rightly be proud.
I wish you a sure hand and every success in tackling the tasks and challenges ahead. You may of course rely on Germany’s friendship and cooperation in a spirit of partnership.
Dr Angela Merkel
