President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has received the Africa-America Institute’s (AAI) National Achievement Award, on behalf of the people of Ghana, at a ceremony on Tuesday, September 19, 2017, at the New York Public Library.

According to President Akufo-Addo, the award, which recognises Ghana’s status as a free, democratic and stable country in Africa, is as a result of the contributions of successive generations of Ghanaian patriots who played invaluable roles in establishing the free, sovereign and democratic Ghana that has been honoured by the AAI.

Delivering his acceptance speech, the President noted that over the course of Ghana’s long, tortuous history it has emerged that ”the spirit of the Ghanaian, in his or her quest for peace, progress and prosperity, cannot be quenched. We are a determined lot, who cannot be deterred.”
