Washington, DC – Yesterday, Rep. Karen Bass (D-Calif.) issued the following statement celebrating Ghana’s independence day.
“Congratulations to the proud people of Ghana on 60 years of independence. Ghana was the first sub-Saharan African country to declare independence in 1957 and helped to set in motion similar Independence movements across the continent. With this in mind, I was honored to attend the January 7, 2017 Inauguration of Ghana’s President His Excellency Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addox.
I wish continued success to the Ghanaian people.”
