John Agyekum Kufuor, a former president of Ghana, has expressed his condolences to the British Royal Family in the wake of Queen Elizabeth II’s passing.
“I extend my sincere sympathies to Her Majesty King Charles III, the rest of the Royal family, and the people of the United Kingdom on the passing of this shining example of moral leadership. He wept, “May the Good Lord grant her eternal rest.
In a statement, the former President praised the late queen as her country’s “rock of sustainability” and a symbol of stability.
He lamented that the monarch of Great Britain and Head of the Commonwealth “underpinned her stewardship with her openness, humanitarian touch, and humility.”
He recalled that the meetings left some lasting recollections as someone who had the opportunity to meet Queen Elizabeth II on a few times.
As President of Ghana, I had the honor of seeing Queen on a few occasions, which culminated in a State Visit she extended to me, during which she and her late husband, the Duke of Edinburgh, entertained my wife and me at Buckingham Palace. I have lasting memories of her humanity and intelligence,” the message said.
On September 8, 2022, the death of the UK’s longest-reigning monarch, who had ruled for 70 years, was officially confirmed. She was 96 years old.
The Queen passed away quietly at Balmoral, her home in Scotland, according to a statement from the Royal Family.
After her passing, her eldest son Charles, the former Prince of Wales, would take the throne as the new King and ruler of 14 Commonwealth states, leading the nation in grief.
