The leader of the Roman Catholic Church, Pope Francis has sent a congratulatory message to President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, on becoming the President of Ghana–after his victory in the 2016 elections.

The congratulation message to Akufo Addo was delivered on Wednesday, February 22, 2017, on behalf of Pope Francis by Archbishop Jean-Marie Speich, Apostolic Nuncio to Ghana.

Archbishop Jean-Marie Speich also said Pope Francis has decided to send an envoy from The Vatican for Ghana’s 60th Independence celebration.

“This decision by Pope Francis, according to Archbishop Jean-Marie Speich, was the first time in 40 years that a delegation had been sent by the Pope to witness Ghana’s Independence Day celebration. This, according to the Papal Nuncio, was indicative of the high regard Pope Francis has for President Akufo-Addo, Ghana and her democratic credentials,” JOY FM reports.

I am an ardent reader and love to learn anything from archaeology to zoology, you can call me "Jack of all trades, master of all".

I love to write and that's exactly what I do at GhanaNation.com. I write on almost everything but my passion is on relationships. I believe it's the foundation of mankind, without it, we wouldn't be here.

Anybody I've come in contact with, admonishes me to be a relationship therapist, so who knows? Maybe that is what the future holds for me...
