Former President John Dramani Mahama has extended a hand of welcome to the Vice President of the United States, Kamala Harris, to Ghana.
Kamala Harris is on a three-day official state visit to the West African nation ahead of similar visits to Tanzania and Zambia in the course of the week.
She touched down at the Kotoka International Airport (KIA) on Sunday, March 26.
In a tweet on Monday morning to welcome the US VP, Mr Mahama said the visit, which follows previous ones by US Presidents in the past, “re-affirms the durable friendship between Ghana and USA”.
“It further demonstrates US’s growing interest in Africa.”
Ghana’s Vice President between 2009 and 2012 expressed hope that the visit will enhance collaboration between US and Africa “to provide the needed support for economic cooperation, youth development and employment and enhanced security for global safety”.
