The US Ambassador to Ghana, Robert P Jackson has assured Ghanaians that America will continue to support a prosperous and democratic Ghana under the leadership of Donald Trump.
“I can promise you that our focus will continue to be a prosperous, democratic Ghana. Now that our elections have concluded, we can look ahead to next month and Ghana’s own election.
“Ghana has a strong electoral system in place and I am confident that we will see a strong, peaceful and free election here on December 7,” Ambassador Jackson said at a Press conference Wednesday morning.
Donald Trump will become the 45th US president after a stunning victory over Democrat Hillary Clinton, the Associated Press news agency reports.
The Republican nominee’s projected victory came down to a handful of key swing states, despite months of polling that favoured Mrs Clinton.
The battlegrounds of Florida, Ohio and North Carolina cleared the way for his Brexit-style upset.
The US president-elect took to the stage at his victory rally in New York and said: “I just received a call from Secretary Clinton. She congratulated us on our victory.”
“It is time for us to come together as one united people.”
Mrs. Clinton had been seeking to make history as the first woman to win the White House, but instead the 70-year-old Mr. Trump made history of another sort, becoming the first person elected to the top job without having held a high government office or military command.
His victory upends a Washington establishment that voters said had lost touch with folks back home, and is a searing rebuke to President Obama, who had pleaded with voters that his hope-and-change agenda was at stake in this election.
