President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has congratulated newly elected German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier.
Mr Steinmeier was elected over the weekend by the Federal Assembly in Berlin. He polled 931 out of 1,260 votes.
He is said to be one of the most popular politicians in Germany, having served as Foreign Minister for eight years.
“I recall, with fondness, our time as Foreign Affairs Ministers of our respective countries, and the good collaboration and partnership we forged, which enabled our two countries develop further areas of co-operation for the benefit of our two peoples,” Ghana’s leader said in a statement on Monday, February 13.
Mr Steinmeier is expected to take office on March 19.
“I wish President Steinmeier and the German people the very best of luck throughout the course of his tenure of office, and in the years to come. It is my hope that the strong relations between Germany and Ghana will be deepened, and grow from strength to strength.”
