Dr Kenneth David Kaunda, first president of independent Zambia says Ghana’s President Nana Akufo-Addo will stand out as a leader on the continent.
According to Dr Kaunda, Akufo-Addo can turn around things not only for Ghana but the continent as a whole.
“Your contribution as President can make a huge difference not only for Ghana but for Africa and the world as a whole. Your becoming President of Ghana has come at a very remarkable time for Ghana and Africa,” he said when President Akufo-Addo paid a courtesy call on him at his residence in the outskirts of Lusaka, as part of his 3-day official State Visit to Zambia.
Dr Kaunda also urged African leaders to be each other keep and ensure the continent wins on all fronts.
“The Bible tells us to love your neighbour as yourself. That neighbour could come from another colour, origin or religion. They may even be from a different political party, but we are all brothers and sisters. We work together to do our part in God’s work. With love, we can overcome great challenges,” he said.
President Akufo-Addo’s visit to Zambia, he added, “nourishes the deep relationship that has been between us for a long time. We have collaborated in various fields of human relations. This visit can enable the governments and peoples of Ghana and Zambia expand and deepen co-operation in various areas of human endeavour.”
