He stated that since Britain and Ghana were both democracies, diplomats across board had to work well with each other's elected government officials.

"There is never a complete agreement on anything but what is important is honesty and a good relationship so you can deal with difficult issues when they come up," he said.

Touching on the problem of corruption, he stated that the problem is deeply ingrained in Ghana and is causing major damage to her people. As far he is concerned, he said the issue "has gotten worse in Ghana and that is my honest opinion.”
