Akufo-Addo receives 2018 outstanding leader’s award
The President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, on Tuesday received the 2018 Outstanding Leader’s Award from the United States Chamber of Commerce and its U.S. Africa Business Centre.
Receiving the award on Monday, 24th September, 2018, President Akufo-Addo noted that, “it is good to know that advocating for Ghana to opt for a partnership with the rest of the world on the basis of trade and investment co-operation, not aid, has its rewards.”
In his acceptance remarks, the President stated that the receipt of the award represents a summary of his focus as Ghana’s President, since assuming the reins of office some Twenty-One months ago.
“I have sought not only to strengthen my country’s democratic credentials, but also to help create wealth and provide opportunities for its people,” he added.
