While extending warm congratulations to the President-elect, Akufo-Ado said that “Tinubu’s victory has ensured that the ruling APC Government has been given four (4) more years to continue in office, which, I am hopeful, will go a long way to enhancing the quality of governance, the rule of law and the performance of the Nigerian economy.”

Akufo-Addo also commended the presidential candidates of the Peoples’ Democratic Party and the Labour Party, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar and Peter Obi, respectively, for their vigorous, well-fought campaigns.


He said the reactions of the unsuccessful candidates to the results of the election will reinforce the boundaries of Nigerian democracy, and consolidate the peace and stability of Nigeria, Africa’s giant.

“It is my expectation that the President-elect would continue in the stead of past Nigerian leaders, and deepen even further the strong friendship that exists between Nigeria and Ghana, which has been based on a shared agenda of freedom, development, security, progress and prosperity.

“Warm congratulations, once again, to President-elect Bola Ahmed Adekunle Tinubu, and to the people of Nigeria. Best wishes for his and Nigeria’s success.”

It was earlier reported that Liberia President, George Weah has also congratulated Bola Ahmed Tinubu for winning Nigeria’s 2023 presidential election.

Weah in a statement released congratulating Tinubu said he looks forward to working with the newly elected Nigerian leader in order to strengthen the bond of friendship that exists between both countries.

He also urged all Nigerians to maintain the peace of their nation during such a huge democratic exercise.
