We’ll work to address common problems – US President-elect, Joe Biden in a letter to Akufo-Addo

United States president-elect, Joe Biden, has expressed optimism of a good working relation with Ghanaian leader, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, as they both take office at a time the world is grappling with several challenges.

In a brief letter to Akufo-Addo, Biden said the work ahead of them is enormous, however, he is certain a great deal of collaboration between world leaders will go a long way to surmount some of the problems facing the world now.

“It is my great honor to have been elected the next president of the United States, and I understand just how much work lies ahead of us,” the 47th vice-president of America stated in the letter.

International cooperation

He added: “Vice President-elect Harris and I will take office at a time of great global challenges – from the coronavirus to climate change – that transcend borders and require international cooperation. We look forward to working with you and your government on addressing the common problems facing our countries and our peoples.

“Thank you again, President Akufo-Addo. I look forward to future dialogue.”

Meanwhile both President-elects are expected to be sworn in this month with President Akufo-Addo’s slated for an earlier date which is January 7 and Biden’s on January 20.

Joe Biden beat incumbent Donald Trump in the November polls to ascend to the seat of President of the United States.

Akufo- Addo also beat his closest rival, John Mahama of the NDC to retain the office for his party.

The common thing between these two elections has been the losers failing to concede defeat and taking legal actions to ratify what they have described as rigged elections.
