President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has won the respect and admiration of many around the world with his solidarity message on the death of George Floyd.

President Akufo-Addo on Monday expressed his condolences to the friends and family of Mr Floyd who was killed in Minneapolis by a US Cop on May 25, 2020.

In the social media post, Nana Akufo-Addo described as shocking the manner in which George Floyd, 46, was killed by the Police Officer in such a brutal manner.

“It cannot be right that, in the 21st century, the United States, this great bastion of democracy, continues to grapple with the problem of systemic racism.”

“We stand with our kith and kin in America in these difficult and trying times, and we hope that the unfortunate, tragic death of George Floyd will inspire a lasting change in how America confronts head on the problems of hate and racism,” the President’s message read in parts.

Reacting to this message on Twitter, a board member of Africa’s renowned Investment Banking Group, United Capital Plc, Mr Sonny Iroche said President Akufo-Addo has earned the title of the moral and effective leadership and giant of Africa among all African Presidents.

“Which West African President has truly earned the title of the moral & effective leadership and giant of Africa? Clearly, President Nana Akufo-Addo,”he wrote on Twitter.

Other Twitter users who reacted to the President’s solidarity message described him as the first among all African leaders who always take the first important step in sending the right ‘signals’ to the rest of the world.
